  • There are definitely some firms which need to start asking themselves some serious questions, such as Travers Smith, BLP, Camerons, Macfarlanes and Simmons & Simmons.
    It is far better to be pro active rather than wait until the most suitable merger candidates have been taken (or simply outgrown you).

  • Howard's mug shot makes him look like such a nice chap

  • Right! lets see - who do you think is the most suitable match for say for example Simmons or Camerons among the US firms?

  • Re Camerons, I've heard Skadden are in the market. Talks are pretty advanced from what I'm hearing...

  • I'm pretty sure Skadden wouldn't be interested in Camerons - especially with its PEP and revenues decreasing so much at the time. Also, what would Camerons necessarily bring to the table, apart from London, that Skadden does not already have. Skadden has a presence in Eastern Europe. Whilst Camerons is a lovely firm, its PEP is simply too low for a top tier American firm to consider.

  • Who would you pair Travers Smith or Macfarlanes with then?

  • The photo of Howard is a bizarre choice. It makes him look unhappy. My memory of the man, albeit from many years back, is that he was a particularly smiley and jovial man.
