How can you have a workhouse which has too little work? There is more than enough work in personal legal services, the problem lies with the disaster that is business legal services. Overpaid, over-hyped and over-rated and yet cosseted by the clueless Board. How many more big name washed up partners or failed mergers will it take before we see an end to the expensive but doomed failure to transform the business? The money is drying up and those who perform are being squeezed daily so as to pay for those who have a track record for failure. The future is anything but bright under a Board which appears to be an improvement on the last one but is still pretty clueless.

BLS at IM is surely the ultimate poisoned chalice for any board. No amount of polishing that turd is going to turn it into a diamond. Best all round if everyone agrees it's time to quit while they are behind and flush the whole thing down the toilet.

All the moaning (and quite rightly!!) and yet all those lawyers who become partners and have the power to make the culture better and make a difference don't seem to do anything.... Unfortunately the money is still more attractive to most.

Why would anyone choose to work for Kirkland instead of any other American moneylaw firm that pays the same? I suspect they will soon have a mass attrition issue on their hands.

No wonder Charles Russell Speechlys made an appearance towards the bottom of the pile. Since the merger they have hemorrhaged lawyers due to the battling at Partner level for everyone to find their feet. The Private Wealth team has less than halved in size, with significant turnover of those that were there at the point of the merger. It was so bad that they actually handed out bonuses to those that 'survived' the merger by one year. Failure to retain good lawyers, pay a proper wage and the fact that others are noted as 'senior associates' before they had even qualified left a lot of the team seething with resentment and looking at other mid-sized firms across the City.

IM missed the chance to diversify 6 or 7 years ago. It will never get another chance to transform from a PI business.
