    makes me laugh to read all the Herbie self congrats as being the best litigators in Town! All this demonstrates is how the city big boys with hugely rich clients using vastly overpriced counsel are able to impress judges. what this has to do with litigation as conducted by most of the profession?

    I entirely agree, Anonymous. It is hardly unreasonable to expect journalists writing for an organ that focuses on legal practice to have a scintilla of knowledge of how the legal professions are organised. It's not that difficult. However, we are talking here about a reporter who, in her report about the Buncefield judgment, referred to "Ted Greeno and Caroline Kehoe [of Herbert Smith LLP] argu[ing] through Jonathan Sumption" that Total was solely responsible for the damage caused by the explosion in December 2005. Fine lawyers though they both will be, I am willing to wager that Mr Sumption was not a mere cipher when presenting Chevron's case at trial. Assuming that "her" report was not merely a cut and paste of the Herbies press release (in which case, they are probably still laughing in Primrose Street), it simply shows she hasn't a clue as to how the Bar (especially someone as extraordinary as Sumption) operates. But then what does one expect from the legal comics?

  • Reaction to the credit crunch

    having noted that Field Grieb is apparently a recent start-up in Kent why is it that it is apparently missing from the Law Society law firms' database to find a solicitor? Or can we take it that the Law Society is a little behind with the backlog of new start-ups due to credit crunch redundancies etc.
