Shattered – The final days of ‘SJ Berwin’

‘When I initiated discussions on our culture at partners’ meetings, I could see the faces of many of my former partners light up, not for the reasons I hoped, but from the reflected glow of their BlackBerrys. They saw an excellent opportunity to catch up on more pressing issues, while I, to their minds, embarked on some abstruse philosophical and largely meaningless examination of our corporate soul.’

David Harrel, senior partner of SJ Berwin between 1992 and 2006, writing in Legal Business, 2013
