I got a text message from my friend last night that read, “Dude- Links, AMSS & AZB are again the ‘go to firms’ on the new Chambers 2010 Ranking.” I texted him back and said
Trilegal has done so well primarily because of the A&O tie up, its retention rates (of associates) is as good (or not as good)as any of the other firms!
Thanks for all the interesting comments and criticisms. They are my inspiration for new columns.
yawnnnnnnnnnn. such a boring article. Why has B
I think those who belong to big law firms argue why rankings matter and those who don't argue otherwise. It is a matter of choice people make. Some are forced to make those choices as they are not good enough for big law and some with options choose life over working like crazy. There is no doubt that rankings matter - but personal preferences may differ on whether it matters to you or not. The author has an interesting view about how we have been a victim of rankings all our life and this is just an extension.
Its not just lawyers in law firms who put in long hours. Even lit. lawyers do. And so do hordes of other professionals across most jurisdictions. There is no point in cribbing that one has to work long as a "dog" because there are no free lunches in life. At the end of the day (month?), as long as you feel enriched (and I don't mean just the money, though that too), you have filled the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.
