  • Can't tell whether this is a blow for Olswang or not (are they still handling other hacking matters, e.g. advice to NI on its internal review?).
    Band is one of the top litigators in the City and would never have landed this had she not left Herbies.

  • Strange comment, Anon. Of course she wouldn't have picked it up while at Herbies, given that Sky are a huge institutional client of the firm. As any fule no, there's a very clear conflict of interest between Sky & NI... there's no way you'd act for both!

    If your comment was an attempted pot shot at HS, it was well off the mark (and I say this as someone who is no longer with the firm). Band is a great litigator; HS, despite all its knockers (who seem out in force of late) remains a great litigation outfit.
