  • To bring some much needed balance to the comments - SJB is not in a crisis situation. We all read the league tables and it still firmly has a place at the top or amongst the top. Ed Harris has certainly contributed to that position and result with some high profile work, but there is other talent at the firm who will work hard to retain the department's position.

    I wish Ed well, but please - a reality check on the bigger picture.

  • Ed hired me at SJB, although I never worked for him directly, seemed like an intelligent and all round nice guy. When I asked him why he moved from FF to SJB, he told me it was SJB making all the noise in the PE space which he wanted a part of. Don't really see the attraction to Lovells but wish him the best of luck, I am sure he has made an informed decision.

  • It’s a real shame Bond Dickenson didn’t get Ed on board. They could’ve provided the right platform.

  • Hilarious to see SJB doing the predictable poisonous fight back In fact, quite pathetic but in keeping with the ethos. I have worked with Ed. He is a great lawyer but also a really nice chap. Pity none of the others in his team could learn from him.

  • Provided his clients go with him, then it really doesn't matter whether Harris is at Berwins, Lovells, Simpson Thatcher, Burges Salmon or, indeed, Bond Dickinson. It's him they are with, not the firm.

  • Where is Julian Hedgefund? He usually has something to say on a Berwins story.

  • Ed has the ability and talent to be the next big name in PE. The partners he is leaving behind know it, Lovells can obviously see it, and he will do well.

  • If a partner isn't leaving for more money or a bigger / better brand, then that tells you everything you need to know about the culture and environment said partner is leaving behind.
