Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton’s decision to fire a four-partner team last week after the firm learned of their planned exit to Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has surprised many in the market, with a number of partners and recruiters criticising the decision and warning of the impact it might have on the firm.

The New York team was fired before giving notice about their departure last week in response to a breach of duties to the firm in relation to confidential information and the handling of clients, according to one person close to the situation.
