  • After 28 years, one could say that’s institutionalisation. Yet Dawkins moves to a USA law firm where workplace cultures are renowned as being more aggressive?
    Not sure if he felt he deserved senior partner status and losing out to Colin Passmore caused him frustration, hence leading to his resignation.
    Or, if going up against prominent Simmons & Simmons talent in an internal vote was a wise and strategic career move. Considering his second term saw turnover and PEP fall significantly, I think it was an uphill battle to maintain peer confidence and reinstatement.
    However, given that 25% of his 28 year tenure was as managing partner, I’m really not sure what else he wants to prove.
    I hope he finds happiness in his new challenges.

  • I will be surprised if Simmons haven't lined up a US merger by the end of this year.

  • Merger is always a bad thing during trouble time.
