  • SJB has been like a departure lounge in recent months. This latest one is a definite blow to the development of that department.

  • Ed made a huge contribution to keeping morale high. Genuinely nice guy, exceptionally talented and technical. Demanding as hell to work with, and I wasn't even in corporate!! Good luck.

  • Am I missing something? Ed Harris is no saint. He is incredibly rude to work with. Great lawyer, but very rude and abrupt.

  • Although the flood of anonymous comments is suspicious, it sure is easy to join in the schadenfreude in respect of SJB.

    I'm certain that this is merely the first of many pending announcements of SJB departures as the "merger" (joining a Swiss verein isn't really a merger, is it?) goes effective in a week or so.

  • Surely there's an opportunity for a new lateral to come in to SJB and grab that department by the scruff of its neck? From what I'm observing, they need to do something quickly.

  • Why does SJB get such a bad rep? It is a great firm and will continue to be a great firm despite departures and setbacks.

  • Chaos. Who's next? They will no doubt be fine, but they should try and curb exits now. Would love to see a list of partner departures in the last 3 years from berwins.

  • Ed Harris is fantastic.

    I loved him in 'The Rock' in particular.

  • Does Harris rank after Davis re deal flow for the PE deals practice at SJB? Who else is in the team - and who of those will be staying I wonder?
