Linklaters is positively gorging itself on its magic circle rivals at the moment.
As revealed exclusively today on www.thelawyer.com, Linklaters is hiring young private equity star Ian Bagshaw from Clifford Chance - and with him gaining footholds in Candover and Blackstone. It virtually guarantees Linklaters a shout every time Clifford Chance gets conflicted out.
