  • What I don't understand is the trend towards legal director at City firms. If the title is billed as an attractive alternative to partnership then how credible can it be if you are continually at risk of redundancy in the brave new world of the challenged partnership model. Why won't redundancies at this level become a regular thing every 3 years or so?

  • I really don't get the sentimentality and trash that gets posted on stories like this. So what, 24 fee earners lost their job. Thousands have been losing their jobs for the last few years. Why is being a fee earner so special or protect you from the harsh realities of business. Wake up and don't be so naive. Of course the partners want more money - isn't that after all one of the reasons you became a lawyer?

  • Some typically crass responses from partners/ wannabes. If AG's partners have any decency at all they'll make decent pay outs. Remains to be seen... The firm has been showing people the exit for years on the quiet.

  • Even after this story I still think Addleshaws care about their staff more than Dickinson Dees.

  • I assume the comment above, which defends the firm by proclaming that there is one law firm in the UK that is even worse, is written by a member of the HR Team. Well done, marketing disaster averted

  • It's the fact that we are meant to feel sorry for the partners after their drop in PEP last year that gets to me. Although, how could they have possibly survived on such a measly sum! Good on them for getting rid of decent hard working underpaid (yes that's right compared to what others in the local market pay) undervalued people after pushing them hard...

  • Amazing that any fee earning lawyer thinks they have an elevated right to job security.
