    You have to liken Linklaters to Prince Charles. Always the second in line, but with the Queen still going strong it doesn't look like he'll ever get the crown.

    Anonymous,
    Im not sure why you believe CC is in any way (other than pure turnover) more successful than Linklaters. Turnover is hardly the key measure. PEP is the real key - where is CC?

    Anonymous who posted at 12:16, why is PEP a key measure? It's all dependent on number of equity partners. Just look at Freshfields. They jumped by almost 40 per cent. Why? Well, Freshfields culled its equity partners not because it's done any better than the other MC firms.

    The reason why PEP is king, is because it's the true measure of what the shareholders take home.

    The higher the better. Period. Nothing else means jack

    That's mean to Jack!

    I still don't agree that PEP is king. What about earnings per partner (EPP)? Surely that's a better indicator of how a firm is doing. You could be an equity partner, sit around doing "Jack" but still get millions. Surely how much each partner brings in is a better measure.
