Most of his boys are also leaving the firm. Nick is fantastic lawyer very charming gentleman! All the best Nick and good bye! Reply Link Anonymous 6 March 2009 at 13:03 Emerging markets head Eastwell quits Linklaters It was well known in Linklaters that Simon Davies and Eastwell did not get on at all. Nick was head of EMEENA and yet didn’t have a place on the executive board. This is therefore far from suprising. Reply Link Former Links Cap Markets MA 6 March 2009 at 13:43 Nick will be greatly missed Nick is one of the best lawyers in the market, an excellent manager and a true gentleman. Even his rivals in the Magic Circle liked him and clients adore him. I am sure that if he still wants to work he will be able to choose from a number of amazing opportunities. And, indeed, a lot of “his boys” have left or will leave. Which only leaves Linklaters the poorer and certainly much less fun. It certainly looks like another sign that Linklaters is going into a “New World”, though the colors of this world will probably be less intense, even if the numbers mayl look better Reply Link Joe Hurd 6 March 2009 at 16:41 One of “the boys” from long ago… I will actually break with the tradition of “The Lawyer” and will post under my own name. For a relatively brief time, I was one of “the boys” while at Linklaters. Nick Eastwell is a true gentleman and a pioneer in the field. One of the things I liked the most about Nick was his dedication to his profession – and his dedication to his team. His love of sport is noted as well: whether it was indoor soccer (followed by a pint and a curry) after work, or a quick five mile run while travelling, Eastwell could (literally) run guys half his age into the ground. A better manager was never had. His presence will be missed. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
