  • Lots of unseemly jealously regarding this purchase. None of us who got into corporate or capital markets law were doing it for charitable impulses, so I don't know why people are pretending that this purchase undermines the moral fibre of the profession, or that it says anything about whether this person mentors associates. I, for one, have no idea, but purchasing a pricey house isn't my measure of it. The more likely explanations anyway are (1) he's someone else's nominee, (2) family money or (3) outstanding business acumen in investing his partner pay.

  • I don't read the comments as being hostile to this guy purchasing a house. Good for him. What people are saying is (a) there is more to law than money and (b) it is a shame the legal press forget that.

  • Yes, yes, yes ... all these comments are all very well, but is this story REALLY newsworthy?

  • @Rob 17-Dec-2013 5:25 pm. The story is newsworthy if the purchase has been funded ("mostly in cash") out of earnings as a partner in Paul Hastings. If on the other hand the purchase is in fact as a nominee for a wealthy client or through independent funds earned/inherited outside the profession, it's just prurient gossip!
