  • With all due respect to PB but that is a massive downgrade for the Riyadh team...

  • With all due respect to Anonymous posting 15 June 2012 2:16 p.m., PB (where I don't work nor have I worked) is a firm with some great lawyers, a long-standing institutional commitment to the Gulf's sovereigns and a transparent compensation system. I am sure that those features were quite appealing to the former D&L lawyers.

  • At Anon at 5:47 pm well I am glad that you apparently know a lot about a firm "where I didn't work nor have I worked". I think I am sure we all agree that we will take that statement with a pinch of salt. Only thing I have to say is world rankings, I think that should be enough to cover my original posting.

  • No one wanted the DL Saudi team, so this team should be happy they landed at a firm. It was not by accident that the DL team that moved over to Dechert did not take the Saudi team along with them. No doubt Dechert will want a Saudi offering. A Saudi offering is important and indeed a must if you want to be in the ME. Even the current firms in Saudi did not pick up the Saudi DL team. What does this say? PB will have its hands full. PB will find out soon why few if any firms wanted the DL Saudi team. Good luck to all of them.

  • My dear Anonymous friend @7:41 am: No salt needed whilst digesting my commentary. True is true; suffice it to say that in my trade I have spent a lot of time analyzing law firm compensation structures and that led to a good bit of time spent looking at PB, which arguably has the most transparent comp. structure of any global firm. And, as for world rankings, I believe we can agree that the demise of D&L should put paid to any credibility in those rankings (recal the "downgrade" of D&L by The American Lawyer rankings, BTW). Ciao.
