  • It's still a considerable step down from Herbies to Lovells, so the latter seems to have done well to attract him.

  • No it isnt. Herbies is a strange place that doesn't like outsiders. Lovells are a top litigation firm and at least a match for them (and no, I don't come from Lovells).

  • Not sure I'd rather be at Freebies than at HogLove at the moment. This guy is high quality, if a little fleet of foot over the past decade, and presumably he is being adequately remunerated. In any event he's possibly yet another one of the partners who was less than thrilled about the merger.

  • Herbies may have a decent practice, but on all accounts it's a very difficult practice to work in. He did well to last nearly 2 years. It will have had nothing to do with the merger.

    That said, Lovells don't have much quality tax litigation work to speak of, so what he'll actually be doing will be interesting.

    I'm not sure that the perpetually claimed increase in tax disputes will ever actually arrive, and the various big teams doing it are all fairly mental.
