  • I suspect Hogan's Warsaw office saw the writing on the wall regarding their place in the Lovells tie-up.

  • 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?

  • Simply, Gorrell chose the Lovells office over his own office.

  • By my maths the combined office would have had 12 partners and around 100 lawyers, making it one of the very largest law firm in Poland. 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.
