Global London – London Broncos

While generally international law firms in London have remained static, there have been a handful of US firms that have continued to shine. LB tracks the most aggressive performers in London in the past 12 months.

There must be a lot of empty desks over at Hunton & Williams’ office in London’s Gherkin. Over the course of a few short weeks in April and May last year the US firm lost virtually its entire transactional team, after a partner exodus saw the 35-strong office dwindle to just 13 lawyers (although insiders say that the number is closer to eight) by the close of 2011.
