ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to developments in legal services. Ernst & Young had spent more than 22m developing its 11 partner law firm Tite & Lewis. That's more than the going rate for a small premier league football team. But forget the beancounters personal injury lawyer Bill Braithwaite QC of Exchange Chambers. He was banned from sitting as a judge in April, when articles he penned for the journal "The Lawyer" apparently made him appear too biased for the bench. Bryan Cave, on the other hand, won't need sympathy. In May, the U.S. firm was taking no chances when it sent the SAS into southern Iraq to case the joint in preparation for a planned office opening.
