Reply Link DeLaAa 18 April 2011 at 11:48 I see the DLA bashers are out – one consultant leaves to join another firm as a consultant. Maybe come results day it will be interesting to see who out of the DLA and Pinsent Masons partners are better paid profits wise. Time will tell.

One doesn’t need to be a DLA basher to know how utterly dismal the firm’s form is there. But yes, partner profts is obviously all that matters. Reply Link Gareth James 18 April 2011 at 20:03 what is going at DLA – they have lost their head of private equity, their head of Litigation and Regulatory and now their only well known and highly regarded property partner – all in the space of two weeks. Is there a queue to get out the door with all their clients? Perhaps that is why they introduced the gardening leave Reply Link Anonymous 19 April 2011 at 15:22 Everyone who has ever worked at DLA and then left (which iseems to be about half the lawyers at UK major firms) knows the score: the equity boys milk it and the rest get paid just about enough to keep them hanging on, until they realise what a old boys trough it really is. They then leave. Reply Link Anonymous 19 April 2011 at 15:32 Why does anyone care whether a “senior consultant” leaves DLA? How is that earth shattering news? The article notes Taylor was also a “senior consultant” at Herbert Smith since 2000 and now at Pinsents? Was he never good enough to be a partner at these firms and if not, why trumpet the move?

Reply Link Anonymous 19 April 2011 at 19:32 David is not a qualified lawyer and thus has been an equity partner equivalent at HS and DLA – for heaven’s sake he was the global head of real estate at DLA until 2009!
