  • What is the point of Simmons? Sums it all up really. Lacklustre firm, no edge. The incoming MP is simply a younger version of the incumbent, has a very similar "personality" and ideas. It is a boring firm. Norton Rose by contrast has a dynamic management team.

  • After large partners departures from China, Germany and Italy; it is time for the London headquarters to see exodus of key partners. What a future US merger candidate will find in the wedding basket ?

  • I have had dealings with this firm and I have formed the distinct impression that despite lauding the fact that its partners all have US/Magic Circle pedigree most have not cut it and were only made up on moving to Simmons. Virtually every partner I know follows this trend or spent a very brief period as Partner. An absolute recipe for disaster good CV's but no real talent workforce.

  • Anyone who has worked there knows that Simmons is going no-where fast hence the exodus of many good staff since 2009! Get a grip of yourselves or fade into insignificance.

  • Merge or die.
    That doesn't just apply to Simmons however but to virtually every UK law firm.

  • I'm confused about the emphasis on AIM companies. These are mostly tiny companies which, with some exceptions, are smaller than most of the 2500 companies listed on the Main Market of the LSE. Does anyone care?
