"I counted them all out and I counted them all back."
Not soldiers, of course, or Chelsea managers, but solicitors out of and into private practice. Today ITV announced that it had enticed LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae partner Andrew Garard back in-house, while Reynolds Porter Chamberlain has recruited BBC lawyer Jaron Lewis into its partnership (see story).
Garard joined LeBoeuf a year ago from Cable & Wireless, where he was general counsel. Prior to that he was in-house chief at Reuters. And prior to that, many moons ago, he was a corporate lawyer at Clifford Chance and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
Now he adds ITV to that glittering CV after his short detour into private practice.
He has yet to comment on his reason for leaving LeBoeuf, but there's not many who can boast of leading the legal teams at three FTSE100 companies. That's some hat trick.
