The building above houses the law firm, Herbert Smith. It hovers over Liverpool Street station on a flexible foundation and although I've been in it, I have never felt it move. It's nice inside: a homage to modernism.
You can see the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chairs in the background.
The reason for this post, however, is that Herbert Smith promoted 18 associates to partner of whom a third were women. But most important of all, is that one of them is my niece, Susannah Cogman. (And these are tough times for promotions.) She's good on white-collar crime and money laundering. And aren't those specialties needed right now....
