  • Is this the first one of many to come in the new year?

  • It appears to be a torrid time for Herbies litigators. What was once the cream of the City litigation market has now turned into a sour mess. Bushell's exit, no doubt for the US dollar, will be a blow.

  • Ooo-err. Herbies have lost a few litigators now, haven't they?

  • Quality hire for Lathams. Who else have they got lined up I wonder?

  • On the litigation side, recent departures of note include Christa Band (probably the most important loss), Simon Bushell, Peter Burrell, Martyn Hopper and Kevin Lloyd (unsurprisingly, The Lawyer's *incisive* market commentary doesn't even mention two of these names). Does anyone actually know why they are all leaving? General under-performance, lower PEP than peers, silo mentality across the litigation department, lots of unhappy associates, still no coherent international strategy? At least they still have Robert Hunter and Gary Milner-Moore (two very, very good lawyers).

  • It isnt just litigators. They have lost a senior corporate partner to Davis Polk.
    The HSF merger looks in retrospect to have been seriously unwise.

  • Christa Band is in The Lawyer's own Hot 100 this year, so her omission from the list of high profile departures is even more glaring.
