  • Strictly speaking it wasn't a raid on Allen & Overy as Stephen Jagusch and Anthony Sinclair weren't in the office at the time. They were having coffee and croissants outside at Patisserie Valerie when the Quinn Emanuel snatch squad grabbed the pair of them and bundled them off in a van.
    And in case anyone's wondering I was there: I still have Jagush's shoe which he lost in the struggle.

  • All of the magic circle (other than Slaughters and perhaps Freshfields) are going to lose their best producers to better firms that don't function like discount stores / factories to survive. Its easy to say its only about the money, but that ignores that good lawyers also have large egos and would rather work in harrods than marks & spencers. An NQ would also have much better training and prospects at an american firm, where more is expected of, and attributed to, each individual lawyer rather than nameless ranks of 'legal managers'.

  • I consider this a raid equalled only by that on Entebbe.

  • Anonymous may be right. A&O probably has the world's best arbitration team, but its reward package lags behind its competitors both in terms of raw numbers and in the way it is rolled out in practice.

  • What is the salary of someone like Jagusch at A&O and what would it be at Quinn?
