  • And there was I thinking, at last, an article about Clydes/BLG without any mention of that Jabbari fellow ....

  • It's probably a requirement that he appears in every article for another year. On the subject, though, have they really hired in Manchester - surely the idea was clear the place out and close it down. Inscrutible financial disciplines at Clydes ... borrow cash, hire people in unexpected places, lower PEP - presumably it's more tax efficient that way. They must be very clever in the Finance Team.

  • Is there an action plan in place for when the Senior Associate and Associate in the same team at Clyde's leave in June? It's a case of one in twelve out at the moment ...

  • Clydes must be so proud - one in, twenty out, such a success story ...

  • The Senior Associate depature is hardly earth shattering.

  • The trouble is that departures here are the latest in a string of them. First the Managing Partner, then the Fraud Partner and most of that team, then seemingly the majority of the non-injury team notwithstanding that the news put out to press here is understandably about the incoming Partner not the departure of the team that was. The insurance outfit from Halliwells looks like it's treading water at best. Those with new ideas are moving to firms like Keoghs that better know the market and move with it.

  • I think the comment from 1.41pm on 26/3 is put into perspective when you consider the team size grew 25% with the arrival of one person. What I don't like about this story is the ridiculous positive spin being trumpeted from an office whose front door over the last few months has been more like a departure lounge at Gatwick than a regional office on the up! Hopefully this will be a cautionary tale to anyone considering a move elsewhere – is the grass greener on the other side? Can you independently verify the tall tales of life being better at a Top 20 law firm or are you better off staying where you are?

  • I work in a different team, but I'm pretty sure the title 'co-head of litigation' belongs instead to someone on the Keoghs board, if it exists at all. This chap was one of two Partners in a team handling non-injury insurance claims, and the junior one at that.

  • Given away to get incoming fraud Partner off a long spell of gardening leave. We know who is the bigger catch.
