The city is awash with cv’s of Mayer Brown partners. The only reason the office has been able to attract a few people is by offering them vastly expanded pay packages for 2 years.

The downward spiral has set in. The departure of good partners with followings only serves to depress the profitability of the London office yet further. Money has been flowing in from the US for a number of years now to keep the place afloat, despite the attempts of management to shave off overheads (e.g. the apparently serial sub-letting of floor after floor – they only have one complete floor left that hasn’t been sublet in whole or part).

Hope all well in new role. Reply Link Anonymous 15 October 2013 at 16:59 Run, run for the hills! This story is going to end like Dewey! Reply Link Such a cad 16 October 2013 at 21:36 @anon 4.59…but Dewey was piled high with debt, and these guys don’t have a penny of debt, and still a PEP level which would make the UK firms jealous.
