    For goodness sake. Look at Freshfields and A&O. They have outstanding continental managers. 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.

  • Pay-back Day

    After Lovells/UK culled a large number of old Boesebeck Droste, become Lovells Germany partners, Lovells Germany is now seeking revenge.

    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.

  • So much for Equal Opportunity and Diversity at Lovells...

    Taken from this article: "For many in London Seisler’s direct style and strong German accent could count against him."
    Taken from the Lovells website: "We treat all members of the firm, client personnel and suppliers and anyone visiting our offices equally, regardless of their age, race, disability, religion or belief, marital status, gender, race, colour, nationality or ethnic or national origin, or sexual orientation. ... All appointments and promotions within the firm are based solely on merit."
    Congratulations!
