So what exactly is going on at Bingham McCutchen’s London finance practice? The Boston-based firm’s London office has witnessed a string of departures from its finance department during the past six months.
Bingham London managing partner James Roome told The Lawyer: “There’s no problem from our point of view. Yes there’s been a small level of turnover, but I don’t think it’s significant. We’re happy with the team.”
Not significant? Considering the department currently only has 12 associates, the departures of one partner and three associates would indeed seem ‘significant’.
