The article presents information on several developments related to various law firms. At the end of last year German firm Beiten Burkhardt ended a tug of love between Berwin Leighton Paisner and Eversheds by choosing an informal network of best friends rather than the formal alliance favoured by both Great Britain firms. Strangely, Beiten claims this was never an option. January is the time of year when firms start looking ahead to April, the end of the financial year--and also, for some, the time when management is re-elected. Back in 2002, Norton Rose decided to completely rejig its management structure, replacing the traditional managing partner with a chief executive.
