  • Telling to compare Mayer Brown's mantra of ever-increasing litigation turnover with a benchmarked industry survey. MB clearly falling off the pace no matter what management say

  • Look, litigation revenue is inherently spiky depending on the size of the cases and whether they settle out. At the top end there is enough volume to smooth this out, but at the bottom end this produces volatility.

    Jumps up and down the table should not therefore be surprising unless, as with the headline to this story, global firms like Mayer Brown (who you would otherwise expect to have sufficient turnover to smooth these factors out) are clearly not doing well. Hat tip to The Lawyer for picking that up

  • For a supposedly global outfit Mayer Brown has never cracked it in London. Its got no domestic UK client base, all its high status London market securitization work is disappearing off to Cads, M&A lawyers are not working on deals. The US just cannot get its US clients to use it in London and Europe.

    The list goes on. Bad karma guys, bad karma. Or should that be kismet?

  • I didn't think anyone was left in London at Mayer Brown anyway. The smart cookies have been leaving for the last 3 years.
