  • I wonder if anyone has done some analysis to determine what percentage, when a firm begins to go a bit wobbly, of the recent lateral hires are the first to jump ship.

  • Great for Hogan Lovells, terrible for SJ Berwin's deals practice. Harris has been one of the biggest players in their team from a high profile deal perspective. Risky move for him, but great if he can transfer his client base.

  • There seems to be new revelations about SJB every month. I don't think bad publicity is always "publicity" in the legal field.

    Congrats to Harris - one of the lucky ones.

  • With EH leaving, who is left at SJB with a credible practice (apart from head Steven Davis)? Davis will have to keep that team afloat in terms of deal quality, client strength and profile. It's been said before, but sinking ship ... no?

  • Don't think it's right to attribute Ed's departure to a deal he happened to work with Stuart Brinkworth on. I imagine Ed, like everybody else who has left SJB, had had his fill of the appalling and stifling culture that exists among the partnership at SJB and Lovells had an opportunity. Wish him the best of luck with the move.

  • Great hire for Lovells. This will do wonders for their private equity practice. For SJB, yet another departure that no doubt could have been prevented with proper management. They will have nobody decent left.
