  • Dave Beveridge, formerly of London and now on shearman's policy committee in New York, made McKimm. He must have egg on his face right now. Beveridge left behind a strong Citigroup and Merrill relationship that McKimm inherited and will now likely take with him

  • This is a big blow to Shearman. No disrespect to Jacques, but Ward *was* the high yield practice, no doubt about that.

  • Dave Beveridge is over from NY. McKimm has left. The partners are running around trying to sure up the Citigroup and Merrill relationships. Fact is, unless Beveridge returns permanently, there's no one to do the work

  • Besides the departure of one partner, I would be concerned about a law firm that cites low collections for a bad year. Since when do elite firms use that as a reason for lower profits and revenues? Not a great sign when most of its Wall Street competitors had record years.

  • Jacques is a great partner and very capable. Given the high volume of high yield work and the scarcity of high yield players in the city - I have no doubt Jacques will be able to bring in deals and keep Shearman a major player.
