  • Lovells' tie-up with Kuntz is a bold move, as the last comment states. Although from a PR perspective, the name of the newly-established firm is something of an "optical horror", the synergies between the firms make this risk worth taking. In this sluggish economy, one must seek to make one's business recession-proof, lest one be branded a "Sluggy Slug" by the rest of the legal industry. If a firm is able to weather the financial storm by flexing rock hard abs - it will fair far better than a firm with a midriff that resembles a "choppy sea" or has in fact no torso whatsover. Lovells are to be applauded in their endeavour to team up with Kuntz.

  • Other law firms who wanted to merge with Kuntz in France will be disappointed. However, any firm which wants to merge with Kuntz in the UK has a wealth of options available to it.

  • I have read with interest the editorial on our best friends’ partnership with Lovells and the buzz!
    I ignored the devious meaning given in English language of my family name since its German origin is linked to the meaning of Art and the pronunciation you suggest is totally wrong.
    Furthermore, I remind you that, for NY lawyers, it is the name of a famous real estate lawyer, partner of Shearman&Sterling!
    Anyhow, for your information, as you seem not to know how the French market is organised, I give you, with the friendly authorisation of the author, our ranking into the latest classification of the French law firms made by Juristes Associés : for 2008, we are number 10 in terms of turnover increase (8 per fee earner), 17 for turnover/fee earners.
