ABSTRACT
The article reports that the companies Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Linklaters have overhauled their systems for allocating work to corporate associates in response to the boom in M & A. According to Tim Jones, head of Freshfields revealed that corporate group has been piloting a system of involving select senior associates in the process of assigning work to their peers. The increasing pressure on the time of partners had prompted the group to consider consulting associates in order to ensure an even spread of work. Linklaters is introducing work allocation partners responsible for ensuring matters to be distributed fairly between associates in terms of volume and types of transactions. The change in approach follows a dramatic upturn in corporate activity which has seen city firms reporting robust half year financial results.
