Reply Link Anonymous 1 March 2010 at 17:13 So Gorrell supports the arrangement, does he? I can’t imagine Hogan or Lovells are delighted to lose a major office a month before the merger goes ahead, or did the Hogans lot just refuse to get in to bed with Lovells in Poland? Reply Link Anonymous 1 March 2010 at 21:13 Simply, Gorrell chose the Lovells office over his own office.

There would probably be some overlap in practice areas as well so some sort of scaling back exercise would have been inevitable should the thing have proceeded. This is probably the cleanest solution for all involved. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
