Even the biggest eejit knows that you have to give your boss notice when you’re leaving. Unfortunately this didn’t occur to a certain US partner when he left his extremely elite New York practice for a magic circle firm.
Apparently this bright spark sent round an email telling his colleagues he was off, without actually telling the management first. The senior partner responded like any New York lawyer would – by calling security and having the offending partner escorted out of the building. How dignified.
