  • "sources dismissed the idea that Blumberg’s nomination was a token gesture for Linklaters' international offices"
    Absolutely. I truly believe that London would vote for a foreign senior partner. Linklaters is such a remarkably cosmopolitan firm in that sense, isn't it? A veritable international patchwork family, all living happily together.
    And those sources also assured me that the lost city of Atlantis is just off the Dogger Bank.

  • After Wim Dejonghe (managing partner, A&O), this would mean a second senior appointment of a Belgian (Flemish) lawyer by a magic circle firm.

  • Genuinely good to see a range of non-Oxbridge candidates.
    Proves once you get your foot into the city, it's talent and ability to bring in £££ that matters.

    Perhaps but that does not mean that well over half of all City trainees being privately-educated isn't despicable.

  • Presumably the person called Anon wishes to remain anonymous as they are embarrased by their stupidity : they have used a double negative in their attempt to be comtemptous of those who have had a private education. Is this indicative of their sub standard education undoubtedly received in the state sector ? Suggests a need for increasing the amount of private and selective education ( such as grammar schools perhaps for those without funds but with brains ).

  • And yet Inteligencia also has spelt the word 'contemptuous' incorrectly. Perhaps sub-standard education exists in the private sector too, assuming Inteligencia was so educated.

  • I believe we all also realise that the double negative in Anon's comment is absolutely correct. He/she is stating that it is despicable. Remove the "not" or replace the "isn't" with an "is" and you clearly get a meaning that supports the preponderance ot privately-educated trainees. Inteligencia [sic] may very well have proven that Anon's belief has merit. Har har.

  • Oh dear, handbags in this manner is so unbecoming.
    The best people should rise to the top (with some exceptions, particularly if disliked by colleagues) and the wise will find more rewarding careers.
