Superficially SJB may regard Orrick as being slightly like them, entrepreneurial and history of growth but culturally they are too far apart for a deal to work. You’re right in the sense that the European offices would kick up a sh*tstorm, SJB’s Paris office in particular. I can’t believe this deal will come to fruition.
