  • And the point is...?

    I'm not quite sure what this article is saying. It seems to suggest that A&O's done the right thing by announcing partnership cuts at the same time as staff cuts, and in that way preserving its "cuddly" image. But then the Lawyer says "we would much rather reveal things than have law firms announce them" - what's the point there? Are you just annoyed because A&O got to announce its own plans rather than them being leaked in advance?

    On the contrary, I was just pointing out that journalists like a good scoop and that I'm not just banging on about transparency for our own benefit.

    The point is that A&O has communicated its actions very clearly and it should come out of this better than if it had not.

  • how else...

    Could this have gone down at Links? Simon Davies first told staff in December that the firm's management was undertaking a review of it's size and shape. We all saw the email, and it went firmwide. Then, in January, the details were leaked, before they had been finalised and announced. So what was the big sin? The only difference between Linklaters' and A+O was that it was leaked and published before Linklaters had a chance to announce officially.

    I really don't understand why Links management is getting stick for being victims to a leak. Does it make sense to anyone, or is it just an easy target?
