  • Any chance of keeping a little bit of perspective here? KWM have lost a reasonably compotent mid-level associate. Life will most certainly go on.

  • Anon @ 11:27pm - it's more the fact that the SJB PE deal team has lost circa 10 associates (somebody correct me if I am wrong) in the space of a year.

  • SJB need to address associate departures in corporate.

  • Highly irritated that some of my comments aren't being published, when they are not offensive in the slightest. Has The Lawyer had a telling off from KWMSJB? What happened to freedom of speech?

  • If anybody is offended by comments, then they should report so. It is not for The Lawyer to determine should be blocked and not posted. People have an opinion on the situation and should be allowed to voice that.

  • The KWMSJB-bashing is unmerited. As a current KWMSJB employee (not corporate), I can say that it is a good place to work - the work is challenging, partners are generally supportive and there is plenty of room for career progression. It is not for everyone and the expectations are often high.

    The recent combination presents challenges and opportunities, like every combination but most people are hopeful that it will work. Cool down everyone.

    And for the record, Leanne was here for 9 years.

  • It is hardly credible that KWM have lost 10 associates from one team in the last 6 months, but if the attitude of the management is reflected in Day's quote, then they need to look far for a reason.

    It will be interesting to see if they make anyone up in this year's partnership round.

  • To "anonymous caller" - it's not SJB bashing. The comments are about that particular corporate team. I'm sure the partners in your department are supportive, but the consensus seems to be that that's not so for the corporate bods.

  • Serious changes needed to that team at SJB. All of the good people are being driven out.

  • Do you people have jobs to do? This is FacebookLite. And KWMSJB is an abbreviation, not an acronym.
