  • Bad days ahead

    White & Case has ceased to be a global force it used to be during Duanne Wall's time. The new management has not been able to respond to the new challenges. One look inside most offices would be sufficient to say that morale is down, work is down, key clients and lawyers are taking the first boat out of the firm. As a firm it would only be a shadow of its former self.

  • Article and Conclusion makes no sense

    If 80% of the workforce is outside of the US but that 80% is only generating 60% of the revenue AND global admin (which is a cost center) is in the U.S., how do you get to the conclusion that the non-US is subsidizing NY? London may or may not be more profitable than NY, but you can't derive that conclusion from the info given. Sloppy article and sloppy thinking. Maybe that is what has gotten W&C into trouble.

  • Excessive salaries

    With typical salaries like $159,028 to $200,120 with benefits in New York and the financial sector of the city disintegrating before our very eyes it's a wonder how any law firm can stay afloat. Maybe they need a tax payer bailout?

  • W&C in fast decline

    This article is just another sign of the demise of W&C . . . I can not see how the London office can keep the US offices - which have no litigation or bankruptcy practice to speak of - afloat . . . soon, the foreign offices will also be falling apart . . . if I were a W&C attorney, I would be reviewing my exit strategy now before it is too late . . .
