  • Here here Beast. This is the partner at the centre of the highly publicised incident at Freshfields last year. A year long 'break from fee earning'... That's diplomatic Gavriel. It doesn't say much for the 'culture' of W&C if he fits it so perfectly.

  • Maybe White and Case have hired him instead of implementing a redundancy plan. He will be excellent for associate attrition, if there are any associates still standing after they let him loose.

  • They will be dancing in the corridors of 65 Fleet Street to see the least popular partner in the firm's illustrious history finally sling his hook.

    Hopefully the associates at W&C demand a full and frank explanation of exactly why Crook has been absent from Freshfields for a whole year before making his move...

  • Why was he unpopular, and why did he have a year off?
