  • "Failure to do so would potentially result in them being moved down the lockstep or put on notice to exit the firm" - surely threatening staff isn't the best way to encourage partners or boost morale?

  • Anonymous' comment at 12.21 epitomises the entitlement culture which is still all too prevalent in many parts of the legal profession - we are, and it appears will remain for some considerable time yet, in the worst economic and financial crisis since the year dot and people like Anonymous consider it a "threat" for partners being required to improve performance or be financially penalised or even shown the door. A message for Anonymous and others like him/her who still think, that having made partner in a major law firm, you can just coast for years until retirement - ain't so and, if it ever was (which I doubt), it certainly is not today.

  • F&J, a good firm gone internationally generic. A great firm 20 years ago, now no more than average. The best new talent won't go there, and the bets partners will be heading for the door...
