  • If the firm's doing so well why have so many London Partners left? Clay's point is tenuous given that well over six partners have left the firm in the last 2 years.

  • Simmons was definitely not a legitimate merger partner for Mayer Brown.

  • You can't blame MB for trying to repair the negative PR that they have had over the past two years. However, for every statistic published, there will be another unpublished one which puts it into perspective. The number of equity partner promotions v departures is one. The number of assistants who have left the firm in the past two years is another. Likewise the number of clients that have walked during that period.
    The positive is that they appear to have arrested the slide, but that's about as far as it goes.

  • Clay says “Of the firm’s top 20 biggest clients, 14 do business in London, generating fees ranging from around $50,000 to $3m,” .... sounds like playing around with numbers has gone wrong .... a firm where one of the top 20 biggest clients only generate $50,000 is nothing to brag about

  • Agree with Anonymous 8 Feb @12:26. This article seems to be deliberately placed desperate attempt by MB to counteract bad publicity. What about departure of the 2 Finance senior partners Jacky Evans, Lee Cullinane bringing an end to the Lev Fin practice only started a year before; departure of FSRE Partner Nick Kynoch which means no FSRE capability globally following US Partner FSRE departures; and many others. There's nothing "pivotal" about the role of the London office ... just trying to stop the slide ....
