  • If they could understand Turkish they would realise that the partners of the big four in Turkey earn money would make a S&M partner think they were working in the public service. Clearly zero understanding of the local market. Not surprising though. The emerging markets have always been the waste basket for the English monolingual lawyers failed in London or not good enough for London.

  • To the commentator above, I think your understanding of the Turkish Legal market is rather 'off the money'. I know several of the partners of international firms present in Istanul and they certainly not failed lawyers at all. I also know a reasonable amount about the margins being made by the biggest Turkish firms and I am very confident you are wrong. It may be correct that the founding partners of the top locals are doing well for themselves, but with very few distributing true partnerships like a London firm would, the difference in earnings within the firms is more likely the staggering part. I would also encourage you to read a little into the subject... Lawyer Magazine did a good insight a while ago into EPP etc and you will note S&M was at the top of that pile.

  • “Once upon a time law was a profession,” says one commentator. “Now it is the preserve of a venal, disgraceful, pathetic oligarchy who have scrambled up the stepladder before kicking it away.”

    “Agreed, City law is now deeply unpleasant and solely money driven,” says another. “In City law firms, redundancies in bad times are a matter of GREED. The manner of many of those redundancies has been even more despicable, with good lawyers being pushed out in the most unpleasant manner through untrue appraisals, bullying and all manner of other ’stealth’ techniques.”

    Interesting comments. Why anyone would want to aspire to this is beyond me.
