  • So, one person sits in Chicago making the decisions. The other has the thankless job of travelling the US / rest of the planet trying to get partners to play nicely with each other with the added bonus of not being known to at least half of them. Nice.

  • Co chief execs never EVER work, it is only ever a fudge to avoid making a politically difficult decision. But they arent stupid and must have known this right at the start. So things must have been so shaky they decided the partnership just wasnt ready for making any kind of decision back then. At least now we know who is the acquirer and who is the acquired. But do they really think the partners didn't already know that???

  • Many of the US firms do not have CEOs/Chairs/MPs sitting in the "head" office. Elliott sits in DC and the same goes for some of the Houston, LA, NY firms. US firms tend to pick the "right" person for the job rather than simply picking someone from the "head" office. This makes sense and has worked out well for them. SNR Denton is an interesting combination although it remains too early to judge if this trans-Atlantic tie-up has worked out better for both firms. We have not read about any major departures or offices splitting off so that is a good sign. SNR Denton has expanded in Asia too.

  • Is there a survey on how well Lovells, DLA, SNR etc have done post US merger? Plus the real effect. It is always a great PR issue being an international but which offices' (partners) suffer or actually gain on the income front?

  • As SNRD embarks on its metamorphosis into Reed Smith it looks like the last post may be sounding for those who held the old DWS values and culture dear to there hearts. RIP DWS.

  • regarding the previous post, I am not sure that DWS could be said to have had its own values and culture, it only existed for 10 years and never really lost the legacy values and cultures (aka differences) of DH and WS.
