  • In these times of austerity law firms should be looking at markets far and wide. I believe that this is the model of business others should follow. Good luck in their venture. Best wishes from TheLawMap team.

  • A statement issued by the firm said: "We have had a run of awful stories saying how screwed our international practice is so we thought we would issue a meaningless statement saying we are going to open an office in the US. That's bound to divert attention while we work out what we are doing." Substance and concrete results are what is required if you are to be credible....not spin.

  • Too little, far too late. HS need a merger or they will quickly start falling apart a la SJ Berwin.

  • Hmm. No indication of when, no evidence of any pre- planning, no announcement of the partners or laterals they expect to fill the offices and no actual licenses (as needed in Korea) to actually open.

    Seems like a desperate attempt to stay relevant. When are A&O going to do it and do it properly?

    Pretty embarassing that lawyers who are meant to be able to strategically plan on behalf of clients evidently can't do it for fudge for themselves.
