  • More like Rafa - not as good as he thinks he is. The best judges are the former BLG partners.

  • "Clydes' loss is Pannone's gain. Jabbari is a leading light on legal strategy as evidenced by the path he lead BLG down and the resultant benefits for its partners so this could be the dawn of another Jabbari success story" - is this a serious comment?

  • It's amazing how much venom there is to Jabba, all of it of course from the cadre of under performers at BLG that he rightly booted out in its journey from the land that time forgot Indeed the merger showed that Clydes did not think he had booted enough of them out and asked for a whole lot more to go. I suppose that those who can do, those who can't blog!

  • Can't see any venom in these comments - just banter around the real issue that BLG partners didn't want to or need to have the merger were it not for the leadership in the 12 months leading up to it including the Halliwell's decision. As for Jabba - good luck to him and let's see whether this venture proves to be a success.

  • It is in a sense irrelevant what partners think about the wisdom of a merger. Partners rarely see beyond their own nose and are more interested in whether the sandwiches in the meeting rooms are satisfactory. Can you imagine a corporate board having to go to each individual shareholder of whatever size and get their approval for a merger. As an external commentator I see the proof of the pudding in the eating: the merged firm is a powerhouse that has left the competition trailing. Macfarlane seems to prefer a future that would have seen BLG dwindle to the point of complete irrelevance.

  • As if the previous comment foresaw this article
    http://www.thelawyer.com/divine-intervention/3001014.article. It must be a sign. Can anyone comment on how near Pannones are to going down the Cobbetts path. At least no-one can blame the DJ this time.
