As a business it has been left behind. Miles behind the magic circle, of course, but also the likes of DLA Piper, Hogan Lovells and Norton Rose. It now has no way of closing the gap, without multiple mergers, indeed the gap will simply get larger and larger as its larger competitors increasingly leverage their scale.
