  • A job offer from the LLP that fell into arrears with its deferred consideration, and that includes partners who are being sued by BDO over Spinningfields........

  • Another one abandons Daffy Austin. It seems he is no longer the chair of audit at the University of Salford. Did the creditor pressure become too much for Manchester's favourite son?

  • In light of the comments of Berg and Gateley it seems she may have accepted the Gateley offer. There are a significant number of partners at the sub llp, Gateley Manchester whose greed (through taking the 21m incentive paid by Halliwells landlord) led to the demise of Halliwells. BDO are litigating against those partners but the former Halliwells FSMs are also being pursued. Why would anybody want to go and work with those who took the reverse premium which caused Halliwells to crash and whose greed has exposed a number of innocent partners who weren't even told about the reverse premium to become embroiled in litigation? I cannot understand why anybody would want to work with these people.

  • Yep - Ian Austin is no longer Chair of Audit at the University of Salford, although Heatons are still incorrectly listing him as being on his bio on their website. One would imagine that even the "University" of Salford found it a tad embarrassing that their Chair of Audit was being pursued through the High Court for secretly pocketing the funds of the law firm he managed.

  • Gateley's offer is clearly testament to Emma's ability as a lawyer and having worked with her I can confirm that she is not only a great lawyer but also a lovely person. She will not have accepted any offer without serious consideration and if she has accepted it will no doubt be the right decision for all.

  • Why did they only realise these things after she had litigated?
