  • What about Ashurst?

    David Carter surely means Ashurst should be on the list as well. Granted, only having one black partner is hardly a sign of great diversity, but it's better than having none.

  • Fantastic News about Trevor James

    I do get very excited and incredibly proud every time I read this sort of news as the there is so much talent out there, mostly still untapped. To loosely paraphrase what Rabinder Singh QC said at the launch of my book, Black Letter Law 2008 at Allen & Overy in October 2008, to achieve greater diversity we should not look for extraordinary talent but look for talent in extraordinary places.

    One thing that needs to be said though is that the figure quoted in the article is inaccurate, even if it is applied only to those of African Caribbean origin. All you need to do is read Black Letter Law 2008 which showcases the achievement of black and ethnic minorities in the legal profession.

    Would you like to plug your book a little more? I think there might be a sentence or two where you've only mentioned it once.

  • What about Harneys?

    I do not want to detract from Trevors moumental acheivement. But what about Leonard Birmingham the managing partner of the International offshore lawfirm Harney's, granted they are boutique in size but this firm cover's the four corners of the globe.

  • MoFo appointment

    I am delighted to hear of Trevor's appointment. He and I were colleagues at DLA for many years, but I never realised he was black......!

  • Another crack in the glass ceiling

    A very pleasing development. Best of luck to him. Looks like a very tough job -- tripling the revenue or sacking partners - either way it will be very tough going. Looks a bit like SWP. Dishy.
