The pick of the bunch…

White & Case is known in the market for its cosy atmosphere and emphasis on family, but one feels that new hires might get more of this than they had originally bargained for.

White & Case head of high yield, Ronald Brody and his team of four New York lawyers, who moved from Mayer Brown in February last year, are testament to the positive vibes the firm promotes.

The team has been affectionately nicknamed the Brody Bunch by the wider firm.

But Tulkinghorn senses an air of sarcasm in this term, and wonders whether Brody and his cohorts are happy about being compared to a cheesy 1970s sitcom family.
