  • The previous comment makes no sense, it is frankly redolent with lies.

  • It is quite bewildering that Simmons can be thought of as a merger candidate. I mean, what does this firm have going for it? A group of lateral hire partners who were not good enough to make it at the top firms, total lack of focus, uninspiring management, high overheads, a move into securitisation just as the market tanked, unhappy junior partners, I could go on. Mayer Brown should be aiming much higher.

  • That is a very good description of Mayer Brown's fundamental issues.

  • Funny how much we each know and don't know. Simmons may have it issues, but it is the go to firm for Hedge Fund work - Like Shulte in the US. Is that fair? No, Decherts and others are fine, but Simmons still gets the first phone call (most of the time). They charge enormous fees - obviously some other departments bring that down and no doubt it has many of the other problems noted.
