  • Sounds like a good move for Taylor - Pinsents is a great firm. What is going on at DLA?

  • 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.

  • Come any day of the year, it will be interesting to see which firm treats is associates and supports staff better. 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • David has never been a partner anywhere - he is old school - never qualified!!!

    Didnt stop him getting to be head of property at BLP!

  • 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!
