Linklaters: German for Clifford Chance?

Man, is Linklaters' German practice ever suffering. Four attorneys have announced their departure from the firm's Frankfurt office: Peter Gamon, Monika Wenz, Herman Eber-Huber, and Christopher Arend.

This comes not long after DLA announced it had snagged three partners and a managing associate from Linklaters' Cologne office. Linklaters was quick to point out that the "partners" were actually junior partners, which apparently is German for senior associates. However, a managing associate is a managing associate in any language.

On top of all this, Rupert Weber, the London-based attorney who lead the creation of Linklaters' German arm, as well as its merger with Oppenhoff & Radler, announced in early November he was heading to Maitland & Co.
