  • It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Nor to one with a better sense of humour.

  • Agreed.

    Really nice guy, pleasant to all, and has a degree of humility not often seen among the heavy hitting partners in the magic circle. Thoroughly pleased for him and for Freshfields.

  • Why are law firm senior partners always so good-looking?

  • I second that. A (very) long time ago I was on the opposite side of a deal with him and he was unfailingly polite and human. I'm glad to see the magic circle can still produce nice people.

  • It couldn't have happened to a nicer person who also happens to be an exceedingly bright lawyer. Fantastic people person, charming and always unfailingly polite to one and all. Excellent choice and bodes very well for the FF.

  • The chaps above are right - he's a gent. Long may he reign.

  • Ok that's enough. Honeymoon over. The backlash starts here. He's a Kiwi and the Rugby World Cup is next year. I've heard he's as dirty as Richie McCaw and wears braids in his hair like Ma'a Nonu.

  • Why there is no Freshfields office in Warsaw?

  • Getting Burke to agree that he'd continue in his role even if he lost was a brilliantly cut-throat tactic. Meant partners felt it was a win-win situation voting for Lawes.

  • After leading FF to world domination, he should be installed General Secretary of the UN, to make the world a truly better place. This guy's amazing. All this couldn't have happened to anyone better.

  • Agreed wholeheartedly with all the comments before me. A bit late with this, sorry.

    I had a terrible accident a few years ago and was blinded as a result - Lawes being the amazing person he is took the time out to come and restore my eyesight. Good to know people like him are the dons nowadays.
