  • This is no doubt the start of many similar announcements involving Lovells partners as the firm prepares to be taken over by Hogan.

  • Anon above demonstrates shocking ignorance of a partner recruitment processes since it normally takes a couple of months to go through the interviewing and nomination process to bring in a lateral. Especially when setting up a new office. So we can safely assume that Sales was out the door long before the Lovehog talks were known, let alone what the potential terms of any merger might look like.
    As Sherlock Holmes might have said, just because you hear a dog barking and then see a dog it is very foolish to assume the same dog was responsible for both.

  • Anons above do not take into account the well known internal problems of the particular Lovells office raided; it is not going to be the sole departure on the coming times

  • It's certainly going to be easier for firms who want to pick off partners to look at Lovells at the moment as the premerger period is always the most nervewracking.

  • Wouldn't the average partner have the nous to look at what the deal really means for them rather than walking out of the door in a strop?
