A&O to launch Casablanca office with three Gide partners
This again proves why A&O is the best firm in the world. Here is why:
In regard to moving to Casablanca personally "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship".
The people of Casablanca I imagine are delighted – "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, [A&O] walks into mine". Perfect, it is almost destiny.
You can imagine the partners when they looked around Casablanca cant you – "With the whole world crumbling, we pick this time to fall in love". In fact, I just don’t think A&O could resist, they are one step ahead of the game – "I can't fight it anymore. I ran away from you once. I can't do it again. Oh, I don't know what's right any longer. You have to think for both of us. For all of us". Indeed and "I wish I didn't love you so much".
A&O would certainly have regrets if they didn't make the move. Someone probably said too David Morley – "If that plane leaves the ground and [A&O are not on it], you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life".
Look why I am saying all this – "I'm saying it because it's true. Inside of us, we both know [A&O belong in Casablanca]". It's part of their work, the thing that keeps them going.
It will keep them one step ahead of their competitors – "Welcome back to the fight. This time I know our side will win".
And this is good news coming off the back of the BSkyB bid not materialising – A&O would have said to Rupert – "But I've got a job to do, too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of...it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that."
Here's looking at you, kid
