  • The lads email was inappropriate, puerile and sexist, but this could amount to criminality. What a complete idiot, and very embarrassing for the firm.
    Why can't junior lawyers at Shearman exhibit a greater sense of social responsibility?

  • Quote from former associate in the London office of Shearman "I had to leave... there was too scandal, drug use and sex".
    Post also misses out the female partner shipped off to the Far East after a threesome with two male trainees.

    First off, trim your English.
    Secondly, you are cheaply mud slinging behind the internet's anonimity curtain.

  • Anonymous | 18-Apr-2012 12:08 pm - your comments are completely untrue (apart from the scandal part). Are there even any female partners in the far east?

    I stand by my post. You are cheaply mud slinging me.
    The story about the threesome is well documented: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/hunt-for-female-partner-at-leading-solicitors-who-had-threesome-with-two-young-trainees-6671748.html

  • To the poster above: I don't see any mention of Shearman in the link to the article you mention. It mentions a threesome involving a partner, but when I Googled it, nothing came up - so what is your assertion based on?

  • This gun incident aside; too many law firms are awash with stuffy, crusty, boring conservative old farts. Applications to Shearman should soar. I would, instead of trying to invoke danage limitation, actively promote this in the firms recruitment literature!

  • Yes, because law firms really need more applications at the moment...

    ...what they do need are clients who trust and respect the fact they're getting efficiency and accuracy from their hours. Antics like this don't help.

  • Dear Shearman & Sterling Associate:
    Given that these are lawyers we are talking about, may I suggest that the alternative lyrics to this song written by Al Yankovic may be more appropriate:

    They see me mowin'
    My front lawn
    I know they're all thinking
    I'm so white n' nerdy

    Think I'm just too white n' nerdy
    Think I'm just too white n' nerdy
    Can't you see I'm white n' nerdy
    Look at me I'm white n' nerdy!
    I wanna roll with-
    The gangsters
    But so far they all think
    I'm too white n' nerdy
    Think I'm just too white n' nerdy
    Think I'm just too white n' nerdy
    I'm just too white n' nerdy
    Really, really white n' nerdy

  • Leaving the comments about boring lawyers, lively firms etc etc etc aside. Would this have even made the news had it not been for the "connection" with Pippa Middleton who herself is only newsworthy for her associations?

    Would you possibly have a "connection" with Shearman?

  • Seems that associates of SS in Paris have client contacts that Magic Circle PARTNERS would kill for.

    Aren't other firms just envious?

    And, no, I have never worked for SS, nor would I want to. But you have to grant it to them. The SS Paris office is printing money.
