  • Well done Mr Nichol. Julian is one of the nice guys - I'm sure he will make a great managing partner. Big loss for Simmons.

  • Great coup for Bracewell. Good to see them taking London seriously at last.

  • Very interesting news and if Bracewell play their recruitment cards right they could make significant waves in the energy sector. They're certainly making a smart move here with Nichol - woe is Simmons but you reap what you sow for endless management inertia/incompetence.

  • Luke is right, Simmons are doomed and will continue to lose their best younger partners while the old duffers bang on about former glories before succumbing to the inevitable defensive US merger by 2016. Nichol is a class act and if he gets the right support from the US could create a credible London office. Good luck Julian!

  • Congratulations Julian, the role he deserved and I'm sure he will attract other equally impressive lawyers.
