This article focuses on law firm Linklaters' managing partner Tony Angel who was quoted in the press last week as saying that the magic circle firm's profits would be "above 10 per cent [up] on last year." But when Angel returns from skiing in Colorado this week, he will fly back into a storm. The firm is now trying to back-pedal dramatically, saying that improvement on last year could be only marginal. What is clear is that partners were warned at a lunch almost three weeks ago that Linklaters had a flat January and February, with billings no better than in 2004.
