  • Odd decision. Leanne was surely next up for partnership in her team. She'll have to re-start now at Lovells. Massive loss to SJB though for sure.

  • So HogLov gets 2 and loses 3. A net loss. Would it be that all the song and dance around strategically growing the PE team was all er hogwash?

  • I'm really not surprised that Leanne's leaving, and wish her the best of luck. Excellent lawyer, insanely organised, on top of all work streams, and above all a funny, warm, engaging person. And that's from a non-corporate bod (no longer at SJB for the record) who often finds it a displeasure to work as support on corporate matters.

  • Bravo Rob with that throwaway comment about people coming and going. I don't see much coming, to be frank.

  • Leanne is a nice individual and a solid lawyer who will be missed by many however, to say 'star PE associate' is nothing more than the Lawyer trying to put a spin on what is essentially a non-story. Day's comment says it all.

  • "Rapid expansion for HL's PE team" - really! How is this expansion? Greenough is retiring, 3 are leaving, and two are joining ... so they're rapidly expanding on a net basis by minus 2??

  • I can't bale Leanne, and wish her well. Bright girl with a bright future, she'll do well.

  • Had no idea Leanne was leaving! She'll definitely be missed by her team and also others across the firm who have to deal with corporate. Sunshine on a rainy day, such a shame.

  • I've worked across Leanne on the other side and she is totally unflappable - calms everything down and was mega efficient. I'm sure I can guess at her reasons for leaving given SJB's rep! Wish her well.

  • Leanne is excellent ,switched on, poised and elegant and will do very well. She'll especially flourish outside the cages of SJB. Good luck Leanne!

  • Oh SJ Berwin. Will you ever, ever, EVER learn? Rule number one - a talented workforce is essential to the success of a business. Please teach your partners how to retain staff!

  • Leanne is only leaving because Ed is. He's like her surrogate father.

  • Blow for SJB deals team, no question. But it's the latest in a string of blows. They will have nobody left.
