The Lawyer Global Litigation Top 50 report is the only ranking of international law firms by litigation and arbitration revenue and is essential reading for anyone seeking to benchmark their litigation and dispute resolution practices...
This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Good to see that the shy and retiring former Herbert Smith and Wragges property leader Gerald Bland has not disappeared entirely since his departure from the Birmingham giant last year.
Via the machinations of a management consultancy "focused on strategy development and implementation" hired to punt his CV to anyone who'll listen, the humble Mr B has created a website to trumpet his new business. "Welcome to the website of Gerald Bland," it blathers, "the internationally acclaimed commercial lawyer, dealmaker, adviser and troubleshooter to a select group of blue-chip corporations and private clients."
Modestly - and perhaps incredibly in the circumstances - there is no pic of Bland on the opening page of the site, just a serious-looking tome. But if it's a photo you want, seek and you will find. As one acquaintance put it: " He's clearly lost none of his humility."
