Mayer Brown loses three partners as White & Case, Vinson swoop
One thing thats rather odd is that White Case still want to invest in this area, with such appalling low volumes and margins but maybe it made sense for the guys moving if their guarantee period at MB was running off (only conjecture).
The really strange thing though is what possessed the two of the them to make the choice to leave the magic circle firms they had been at. Not just as they would have been kissing goodbye to huge salaries and a nice glide to retirement but also leaving the really stimulating, fun and congenial environmemts which especially Allen Overy's lev fin team is famous for. No good crying about it now but it does look like the wrong call. I noticed that an ex Allens lev fin partner who left around the same time as Jacky has just bee re-admiited as a senior partner, so maybe a retrun to the mothership could be next after Whites?
