  • This is pretty much unprecedented in the Gulf. What on earth is causing all this? W&C can't be a happy place right now.

  • Oooh I would love to be fly on the wall in Hugh Verrier's office when his blackberry buzzed with news announcing Macklin's departure. What goes around comes around!

  • Andrew Macklin is a nice guy so for him to leave so quickly this says a lot. Mr Brettle watch out, things are starting to draw in........

  • the ship is clearly in trouble - to lose decent finance lawyers in this market is a great mistake and one no well managed firm should fall at risk of doing - as the upturn continues to strengthen those firms that fail to look after (and respect) their good people will be the losers .... losers !

  • These events distinctly put W&C at a disadvantage in recruiting. Not even a headhunter could, with a straight face, recommend them. What could Ewe possibly have had in mind when he set out on this mad dash of destruction? Oliver, where is your army?

  • "Mr Kurtz - he dead." Eat what you kill. Origination hogs dominate unchecked. Everyone else scared of the chop.

  • its not a happy place.

    it hasn't been for a while has it Mr Brettle?

    Oliver needs to start thinking about his staff. Taking into account all those that have been made redundant, took voluntary and have since jumped ship it doesn't say much for him!

  • A post on one of the other W&C articles reported that HV received standing room applause at the partners' meeting in Paris. If so, that is applause in the context of all of the pain that the firm has caused - applause over all of the dead bodies. That applause is tacky, and to report it even tackier.

  • Oliver, Oliver Oliver......... clearly there is a lot more to managment that you thought.

    And you're an employment lawyer too - you couldn't make it up!
