  • The pressure is now firmly on the corporate-commercial partners to bring in decent fees in 2011. The last three years have been woeful but other departments have been willing to subsidise. Not now they're making up new partners.

  • What a calamity!

    Johnny Flynn certainly wasn't perfect. However the partners should have overlooked his weaknesses. Now he's defecting to start a rival firm and he's likely to take a significant number of clients with him.

  • I would have expected John Flynn to have landed many more big name clients by now.
    However I guess he's still working under various restrictions. These are likely to have ended in May 2012, so let's see what he achieves now.
