Hmmm. This should be interesting. It is going to put Hugh Verrier in a quandary! Who will he pick to get cut – (1) his cronies (majority) who supported him for chairmanship of the firm last year but are not rainmakers and have no viable business case for being partners or (2) his detractors who opposed him for chairman of the firm but are the real rainmakers and the business force for keeping White & Case afloat right now. It will be interesting to see which partners at White & Case survive the impending carnage and what happens to fabric of the W&C partnership during the process. My guess – the partners will turn on each other even more than in the past – ripping the partnership apart – and the majority of the partners left after the bloodletting will be Verrier’s cronies.
