"It was all very amicable," says partner Sharon Ser. "We are regrouping and developing our China business which is our next major move. You need a good strong China practice."

About the split, she says: "The shipping people decided that it was better in terms of management to be working under Hill Taylor Dickinson. It was not a split."
