  • Mayer Brown = Dewey & LeBoeuf. The panic is well underway.

  • This firm does seem to be in a bit of a downward spiral. Time will tell if it's terminal though.

  • This is hardly a downward spiral. Mayer Brown is a great firm and a first class international law firm. No, I do not work for Mayer Brown. Cadwalader had huge problems only as recently as a couple of years back and London continues to be a mess. The other firms mentioned above are simply more profitable firms and the London base for Mayer Brown is an easy target. People will leave for lots more money.

  • The rot started just after the firm won Roll on Friday 'Turd of the Year'

  • Morale is currently rock bottom and there is a sense of listlessness and crisis in the air.
    That is probably true of quite a few firms though.

  • So he and the security guard will be the only full time members of the Cadwalader London staff...what a great firm!

  • More redundancies are definitely on the way. Workloads have plummeted and anyone busy at their computer is probably working on their CV. We now keep hearing about associates that are 'leaving'. In just the last 2 weeks I've now heard of 3 new joiner associates (in different departments) that were not kept on at the end of their probation period.

    The rot started long ago, but re-electing Sean earlier this summer (Mayer Brown's very own Captain Schettino) was definitely a sign that we're heading for the rocks.
