  • I used to work at White & Case and I honestly believe it couldn't happen to a nicer or more promising (a few years ago) firm. But then again, people and firms change very quickly (as they will again), and I just cannot understand how such a group of intelligent people could get on so badly with each other to create such a sad state of affairs from what was a truly promising place to be.

  • I agree with Anonymous @ 5:15pm. This is fantastic news! The passengers continue to jump off the sinking Titanic! The demise of White & Case continues . . . ;-)

  • To Anonymous @ 2:55pm:
    The answer is very simple. The culture of W&C has changed dramatically over the past few years. It has developed a culture of cronyism starting with the Duane Wall years, where advancement is based on who you know and suck up to, rather than on your achievements. Promising partners and senior attorneys were forced out in favor of those who actually worked hard and brought in business. The management lost sight of the fact that the law firm is a BUSINESS and has to be run as such - not run as the personal fiefdom of Hugh Verrier and his cronies.
