Herbies disputes exits continue with Addleshaws raid
in reply to utter rubbish anonymous - what I think the two previous posts are on about here is singling out one particular law firm for The Lawyer treatment. This publication did the same thing to Norton Rose in 2004 and 2005 and it was as bad then as it is now. There is not a pattern of defection and decline - that is absolute nonsense. And even if there is, Nicola Peter's departure is symptomatic of nothing. Rod Fletcher, a leading corporate crime partner, is in the process of joining HSF. Now let's put two and two together. Leading corporate crime partner joins a firm. Said firm made up an associate about 18 months ago. Other associate was promoted to counsel, NOT partner. Said counsel moves for partnership because she could not obtain it at her own firm. This is symptomatic of someone not being made up and looking for partnership elsewhere and trading down massively in the process. No disrespect AG. Lawyers do this all the time. Lower tier law firms are littered with partners who were not successful at their previous firms. The Lawyer needs to get a grip and start doing some proper reporting.
