    Hi Anonymous, Alfred Adler, an Austrian psychiatrist, once said: "The only normal people are the one's you don't know very well."

    All of us are plagued by psychological issues at some point in our lives. The more unfortunate of us live a life traumatized by past events, sometimes without being consciously aware of it. However, there are a variety of effective psychological techniques to help one cope with emotional problems.

    To "Axe to Grind" and "No Fan of W&C But":



























    Did you see the latest news from W&C??? 200 associates let go. That makes W&C the firm with the largest number of layoffs. So, still an avid supporter of the sinking Titanic??? Ha-ha. You better sit tight - you are probably next on the chopping block . . .

  • Get the Facts Straight!

    You need to get your facts straight. W&C Singapore did not split Venture off. Venture split off from W&C Singapore because the alliance favored W&C and was not beneficial to Venture in any respect. Venture brought in all of the deals and persuaded its clients to hire W&C on the international side. W&C did not bring any clients to Venture. This split will hurt W&C much more than Venture. Venture will be in a much stronger position going forward, and W&C Singapore will wither on the vine. W&C Singapore should have done more to keep the alliance with Venture. Another stupid move by W&C.

  • You get thr facts right!

    Venture i heavily focused on capital markets work. Wake up and look around the environment. Any capital market work around? It is smart of W&C to dump off Venture at a time like this. I bet with you the rest of the local firms are cosying up to W&C as we speak. It is still after all an international law firm. When the dust is cleared, W&C will come back. They had expanded and shrunk in Spore and many parts of the world depending on the external environment. The value proposition of Venture is greatly reduced. Previously they pitched on basis of joint law advice for cap market deals. Now they cannot issue 144A opinions..... What is the value proposition? And they have lots of expensive associates to feed. Its gonna be interesting to see if they will start firing. Another note: obviously the alliance will favor W&C. Local using international platform to get big ticket deals at international rates. What do you expect? But why plit now? Kudos to W&C. Long time awaiting.....

    First, your posting is extremely hard to read. Your English and your spelling are terrible. "Look around the environment"? "value proposition"? You must be a W&C partner! Ha-ha. Second, to set the record straight, there has been alot of capital markets work (mostly rights offerings) in Singapore in the past few months - and Venture has been appointed for many of those deals. W&C has ONLY gotten involved because Venture brought in the those deals in the first place. W&C has brought in no projects of its own since it lost its rainmakers last year. Enough said. Let those other local Singapore firms cosy up to W&C. They will learn the hard way that W&C has nothing to bring to the table.
