  • There's not going to be anybody left at SJ Berwin soon :)

  • Much as it would be a great story that SJB was about to implode like Howrey, I don't think even losing a dozen senior lawyers is going to kill a firm that has more than 600+ lawyers. Mass exoduses occur when the partners lose total faith in the idea behind the firm - e.g. Howrey. SJB is just bruised and strategically challenged - but broken and with its partners running to the exits? - No.

  • Stop being so mean spirited -there are departures at other firms too its just that people choose to highlight departures from SJ as its the popular thing to do. SJ will be fine, I just know it. Look how far it came in such a short space of time, it has the fundamentals to pick itself up once again.

    I'm starting my training contract there next year and I don't regret it for a second.

  • A bit like Man Utd, aren't they? The firm everyone seems to hate, albeit not a Premier League side.

  • @ Anonymous | 8-Mar-2011 5:25 pm - SJ Berwin has long had a reputation as one of the most unpleasant places to work in the City - particularly if you are not one of the 'in crowd' - and there will be many ex-employees of the firm taking GREAT pleasure from their current crisis.

  • so Leeds United then? On a serious note though Pinsents do seem to be 'gearing up' at the moment

  • Of course there is a wonderful natural justice in the existential crisis facing SJ Berwin.

    There is nothing better than when a person or organsation reaps what it has sown.

  • ....be happy. Bitterness gets you nowhere. If you didn't like it, be happy that you left. If you haven't left, you have a choice.

    Why waste valuable time and energy when the choice is yours?

  • Think about how pleasant the lives of some people are when they enjoy using internet forums to hate on a LAW FIRM.

    Please, take a day off, enjoy the sun and use the bad energy doing something constructive. Life's too short to hate SJ Berwin.

  • I think several of the above posters seem to have misread the article. Whilst I am sure Mr Greenaway is a fantastic lawyer, he is an associate at SJB - not a partner. All the talk of SJB hemorrhaging partners is inaccurate when made in the context of Daniel Greenaway's departure. Furthermore, senior associates leave to join other firms all the time - why on earth is this situation particularly newsworthy over and above all the rest of the lateral recruitments?
