I note it only not because it is necessarily either interesting or surprising – I’m not saying it is, or isn’t either of those, by the way – I just note the use of the word ‘defection’ in the story. I don’t think this is the press ‘sensationalising’ departures, as much as lawyers would love that to be true. Its sister-title, Marketing Week, by contrast, which has a circulation roughly 30% greater than The Lawyer (indicating the much greater size of its sector) has only used the term five times this year, and only in two cases was it referring to high level moves (the others, ironically enough, were talking about defects in products). I have long believed that law firms are, essentially, held together more by a combination of faith and inertia than by underlying business logic.
To me, the word ‘defection’ perfectly encapsulates the peculiarly personal nature of the law firm business. A ‘defection’  is not just about business logic, about aiming higher, changing tempo or going niche; it is about the failure of a psychological contract between the firm, its management and its partners, with the individual(s) concerned. A ‘defection’ is too-often charged with feelings of bitterness, guilt, regret and recrimination, in stark contrast to, say the McKinsey “stay friends” approach to its alumni. This set me thinking about the balance between closing ranks and self-examination within the abandoned firm.
No, the impetus was to recruit to fill the gap, often with the result that the position was essentially unfillable or that whoever went in there ended up failing for substantially the same reasons. It is in the commercial interest of no recruiter to challenge this standard law firm response, except in the most gentle way. I, of course, would posit an alternative view, that of getting your house in order before you spend the time, money and energy trying to bring someone over to your ‘faith’.

Marc Robillard took it upon himself to care for his elderly mother, who suffered from Alzheimer’s, for several years before and after she entered a care home. During the time his mother was in care, Marc withdrew a total of more than $90,000 from her account. In his application for probate, Marc stated that the gross value of the estate was $194,129.
The court found Marc’s testimony regarding the way he handled his mother’s money, and why he first did not communicate with Suzanne and then later tried to tell her that $29,704 was her share of the estate “as set out in the will” showed dishonesty. It has a political side to it, indicating a move away from a ruinous situation, or a loss of faith, and the transfer of allegiance to another faith. The fact that this word crops up time and time and time again in the profession for good reason. Business positions or new initiatives are rarely evidenced, plans usually no more than cursory, and recruitment often relies more on faith than business substance. Not that we need proof of that, but then law firms will insist on trying to run themselves as if they are ‘normal’ businesses (rather than flat, low-hierarchy collegial collectives) so these days I don’t shy away from pointing out this curiosity.
This is a loss of faith, and, where there isn’t a leap-in-the-dark to another ‘faith’, can even be similar to bereavement, psychologically-speaking.
When I was a recruiter, I did not get the impression firms spent much time analysing what might have gone wrong to make the person leave and what might need to change before they recruited again. After all, much easier to recruit than spend time ‘navel-gazing’ or grasping political nettles, and much better to feel that something is happening, even if the end-result might be the same waste of time, money and energy. The plain fact is that recruiters know full well which firms are failing, stumbling and crashing as they’re acting for exiting partners who are giving them all the gory details. That route may be full of uncomfortable truths, nettle-grasping and disruption of old ways but, I think, purifying your recruitment ‘context’ and clarifying the sell makes for a faster, easier and cheaper process and makes hires much more likely to stay for the long term.
Robillard Estate, 2015 BCSC 1417, highlights the responsibilities of a power of attorney, and the potential for a dishonest person to abuse that role.
He claimed this was for various expenses of his mother’s, as well as the cost of maintaining and operating his vehicle. This included the $150,000 he had taken out, but not the other sums he’d withdrawn over the years.


Suzanne counterclaimed for an accounting of the money Marc had withdrawn from the mother’s account, and for an equal division of the estate as the will specified.
The Lawyer has used the word ‘defection’ in news stories 88 times in the past five years, and has referred to ‘defections’ 28 times this year alone, in each case referring to partner or senior moves. Setting aside for a moment the fact that it doesn’t do for recruiters to bite the hand that feeds, opening yourself up to your resellers may put them off suggesting you to candidates, which could be disastrous. Marc had one sibling who was also a beneficiary of their mother’s will, Suzanne, who lived in Mexico. He then wrote to his sister to tell her that her share of the estate came to $29,704, in accordance with the will, but he did not provide her with a copy of the will.
The law under the Power of Attorney Act and the Power of Attorney Regulation requires a person acting as power of attorney to act in good faith, to keep their property separate from that of the person who made the power of attorney, and to maintain records. The deceased owed no legal obligation to either of her children, as they were both financially independent, and she discharged her moral obligation to them through the equal division of her estate.
Only the very best recruiters will really go out on a limb to suggest changes, and even they will only go so far; most will simply take a pragmatic view and take the money, and who can blame them? He was required to tell his sister about the application for probate, but he did not do this.
Marc showed devotion to his mother in her later years, but this arose out of his own choices rather than her need. Suzanne told Marc that she expected the will to be equally divided and asked him to account for the total value of the estate. The court calculated the total value of the estate and ordered that Suzanne was entitled to one half the total. Marc was also required to pay the estate back for the money he had taken out, plus interest.
