How many more to come….perhaps they should do a salvation merger and talk to SJB? Reply Link Anonymous 16 December 2011 at 16:04 This isn’t the complete list of departures or indeed the end of it. Watch this space. Reply Link Anonymous 16 December 2011 at 16:38 Sad to see this happening to a firm that once had so much going for it. In addition to the partners there have been dozens of departures at associate level over the past two years or more. At this rate of attrition, MB London will soon be reduced to a satellite office and serviced office space for travelling US partners. The talent drain and massive real estate overhead is unlikely to make MB London an attractive merger partner. Troubled times ahead.
