Reply Link Vercingetorix 17 April 2012 at 16:42 Didn’t the Howrey debacle play out a bit like this? This looks like a snowball rolling down a hill very fast. Reply Link Anon 17 April 2012 at 16:53 It’s amazing how fast a big firm can implode these days. A process which might have played out over a period of years in the past now takes just a few months (although the rot obviously set in long ago). Reply Link Anonymous 17 April 2012 at 17:47 You can’t make this up — this is an actual quote from Dewey today (17 April): “The number who have left to date, including firm initiated reductions, is consistent with the reduced headcount contemplated by our plan, which contemplates limited further headcount reduction over the next several months,” the statement says. I could have sworn that this quote was used by the management at Heller and Howrey as well.

Then the firm will do much better without them. Reply Link Anonymous 18 April 2012 at 11:50 “Anonymous | 17-Apr-2012 6:07 pm Here are the infidels leaving, who will repeat the same elsewhere.

Reply Link Anonymous 18 April 2012 at 20:34 Desperate times call for desperate measures!!! How desperate must these Dewey guys be to jump to Hunton. From one sinking ship to another very leaky ship. I hope that the Dewey guys come wearing life preserves and carrying buckets as they will have to use them again pretty shortly!! Reply Link Anonymous 18 April 2012 at 20:38 Rats leaving a sinking ship indeed! They will soon realise there is no cheese at Hunton and will be off to their next gig soon enough! Reply Link Anonymous 20 April 2012 at 01:28 Hunton’s profitability is so poor that these guys must be so desperate to take such a pay cut to join Huntons Reply Link Anonymous 20 April 2012 at 01:31 I predict that Huntons is the new Dewey …can’t believe their international offices are sustainable Reply Link Anonymous 20 April 2012 at 01:38 Its hard to see any way forward for Dewey …its a real pity that quality lawyers have to find themselves moving to a very odd mid-tier firm Reply Link Anonymous 22 April 2012 at 19:10 People are being horribly unfair on Huntons. Yes it has had a lot of problems in London where it is office is a basket case but its offices in the States are solid. Reply Link Anonymous 22 April 2012 at 19:13 Unfair… its a fair characterisation of Huntons which is a firm that is going no where… and is just there to make up the numbers… its is the ultimate quality free zone Reply Link Anonymous 27 April 2012 at 00:50 It would have been better if Hunton hired in London. They don’t have enough lawyers to field a football team in their london office… obviously London isn’t a priority… Reply Link Anonymous 27 April 2012 at 00:52 Its quality not quantity that is important and though we are small we have that in spades Reply Link Anonymous 27 April 2012 at 00:56 Keep telling yourself that… Huntons is an irrelevance and is a firm going no where …. Anybody smart could work that out Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
