  • Harald was standing down anyway

    This had nothing to do with the managing partner election.

  • Seisler

    Seisler's term as Europe head was due to come to an end and there is nothing to suggest he was going to stand again, so his stepping down is not particularly untoward: idling out his last two months after the managing partner election defeat would have been painful.

  • Standing Down

    We all know the reasons for this and they have EVERYTHING to do with the management election.

  • The fun starts..

    There's nothing to be read into Harald's resignation. He said clearly he wouldn't carry on in the firm if he wasn't elected managing partner. The question is who will be his successor.

    According to press reports, all the serious candidates are Germans. And there is a degree of annoyance (not quite hostility) amongst German partners about how annoyed (if not quite hostile) London partners were about someone daring to challenge David.

    The biggest job for David will be to sooth the wounded pride of German and continental partners before some of them start looking round for firms that are serious about tackling a lack of meritocracy in a London office.
