  • Berlin is not really where the action is in Germany. If half the Frankfurt office had walked out that would be more damaging to Hogan Lovells, so David Harris wont' be crying into his beer.

  • It's not just Germany (remember the Polish lot that joined K&L Gates?) - not even just Europe. Lovells has already lost a bunch of lawyers in New York in another breakaway. Signs not good?

  • There's two ways of looking at this. The more benign reading would be that the atmosphere in Germany lends itself to the creation of spin-off firms whenever there are big mergers, and that this move reflects that atmoshpere.
    Lovells would no doubt like to see it as such. But as the above poster points out, this is not an isolated incident and if I was Lovells I'd be seriously looking at why this keeps happening.
