It was at the Granita restaurant that Gordon Brown and Tony Blair drew up their famous leadership pact. One wonders whether Guy Beringer and David Morley forged a similar agreement at some upmarket St Paul’s wine bar before Morley became managing partner back in 2002. As legalweek.com reported yesterday (see story), the partners at Allen & Overy (A&O) have agreed to extend Morley’s term so that it will finish when Beringer’s second term as senior partner comes to an end. Conveniently, that would pave the way for Morley to become the top dog at A&O in 2008. Few will doubt that this is Morley’s ambition — and few would bet against his assuming the role, given both his reputation as a client winner and a natural communicator.
