And if Seisler is trying to set up an opposition between successful continental offices (not just Germany) and London, that is because Lovells UK has consistently lost ground on its London rivals. Seisler’s doing something right. London’s doing something wrong. Deal with it.

Seisler is known throughout central and eastern Europe as the “butcher”, relentlessly culling underperforming partners. Sad thing: those suffering will be the associates. The sorry Frankfurt history might be repeated in London.
