  • Herbies is such an old school outfit, can't imagine them allowing a US partner currently based overseas to run things.

    Herbert Smith has an extensive international network and for some time has been one of the more progressive firms in the City

  • There is no way on earth Hanen will get it.
    Parkes has many friends within the partnership, more than Scott. However, those wishing for a strong hand on cost constraint may well back Scott.
    International network? Hardly and not compared to the magic circle. No US office, no German office and nothing in Eatern Europe other than Russia.
    Still a very traditional firm - and that's probably a selling point

  • Moscow head to senior partner?

    Didn't work too well for White & Case.

  • There's little to reccomend any of the contenders. What the firm needs is fresh blood and someone to break with the stale old approach. It says a lot about the partnership that it can't muster a more formidable list of names than this particular group.

  • Who are these guys? not sure any of them have what it takes to do this job. Gold has made the role his own and will be a really hard act to follow. although he may not be particularly well liked within the firm he has certainly done a good job. and he is respected. With Willis proving popular as managing partner, whoever wins this election will have a very big job on their hands.
