I'm sure all those top-billing KWM associates will be thrilled by the prospect of working at a regional shop called 'Royds'.

Anonymous 25 January 17 16:02

This has put a smile on my face. With KWM, Freshfields and CMS/Nabarro/Olswang there are going to be a shed load of support staff on the market at pretty much the same time. A depressing thought.
