  • Peter Martyr's openness is to be admired. Most refreshing. And good to see no hollow "We wish them all the best" nonsense.

  • Yet another set of highly profitable and well-connected French lawyers who are tired of seeing their profits pay for the salaries of the London marketing department, the London head office rent, etc... Successful French firms are lean and mean and the lawyers are highly individualistic - they have a lot in common with barristers.

  • I don't know about the profitability or the connection of these guys but considering the number of partners leaving, it is too easy to blame the "unusual market" and its "volatility". What would be refreshing is to have management acknowledging their own shortcomings for once.

    Yes but moving from the Paris office of a premier international firm to the Paris office of a much smaller, less prestigious firm isn't going to solve any of those issues.

  • The French lawyers Mr Martyr is wishing to attract to replace the departing team will certainly be pleased to see what he thinks of them.
