Clifford Chance makes up largest cohort of new partners in a decade

how on earth is this a "premium" story on The Lawyer's website?

 

Well-known firm. Signs of growth.

What do you suggest The Lawyer writes about? Rose Hanbury??

 

I am not suggesting that The Lawyer does not write such stories (although a light-hearted Tatler style column may well re-invigorate this tired brand), but rather I am asking why this story should be behind a paywall.

a lot of the 'people' stories are behind paywall as they are the gossipy ones that people might actually want to bother to read, and the evil overlords at The Lawyer think they can seduce you into buying an overpriced subscription

Is CC a good place to work if you are NOT a partner ?  

You have next to zero chance of ever becoming one.  

I'm not sure I'd want to instruct a made up partner.  Sounds a bit too emperor's new lawyer to me.

heh@madeup

 

the full made up list for those that cannot access the paywall

 

Derek Bastard (Banking, Lon)

Adolf Jones (Banking, Lon)

Simon Dalek (Banking, Lon)

Benito Mussolini (Banking, Rome)

Martin Bollockchops (Corporate, Lon)

Marvin Trumplicker Jr (Anti-Trust, NYC)

Bryan F Cookie-Monster (Corporate, NYC)

Bent Weenis (Corporate, Amst)

Phenyl Alcohol Wang (Banking, HK)

Andy Shoutlouder (Banking, San Paolo)

Brian Spastic (Tax, Lon)

Sarah Sadcase (Employment, Lon)

Trumplicker was in my trainee intake.  Good lad, likes his rugby.

Did Ivan Akinhump not make it through this year then?

I know Emmeline. She's my age. Ofcourse she was known as Emmett back then. Before she transitioned.

He was one of the 32 candidates given a go-round. Him and the women, except Sarah who in her spare time was selected for the SAS reserve and won Britain's Strongest Man in January.

We should not judge, though. The list is impressive and these are truly diverse candidates with a very strong catalogue of abilities between them. Bent Weenis, for example, actually devised a sustainable energy source which powers his computer and office lighting using the kinetic energy of his three testicles.

Brian Spastic eats a cheese sandwich on white at 11.59 every day with the crusts cut off using his bonsai scissors, and is of course the author of Spastic on Witholding Tax.

Are you sure that was him mutters?  I thought it was one of the Moscow partners made up last year: Hugh D'Janickabollockoff

Phenyl Alcohol Wang (known to his friends as "Benny") is also a greyhound jockey

No you are getting confused Wang. The Russian partner they made up was Ivana Strapadictimi

Oh right, she worked for Gronya Backyabytch iirc

Is, CC all equity, or do they have hoards of salaried partners?

Don't be disturbed , I am sure you have more pressing things occupying your mind on a day to day basis.

Diverse my arse. They've passed over Jack Cornrow again. Hear Peony N'kele - Appropriation wasn't even considered.

Poopong Pornipants Kuntinasarong (Bangkok, Media) made it.

Good one. Being the Thai King's nephew, who also got caught sharing a bed with the managing partner James Repressed - Paedopants, had absolutely nothing to do with it either. CCs unit merit based development program really works.
