  • Olswang is too unfocused and mid market to be a quality media and technology boutique. It is far too small to be a global full service firm. It seems strategically lost and its brand is becoming meaningless. Doing bits and pieces of lower mid market finance, real estate and employment work at heavy discounts smacks of pure desperation.

  • Growing dept as investment in people which will pay off longer term... yeah, that is what the Dewey guys thought as well.

  • Once upon a time Olswang seemed a firm that was going places, hungry, highly focused, profitable and very low staff turnover. It just goes to show how quickly a period of bad management can now damage a firm.

  • Olswang should focus on trying to be to media law what Travers Smith is to private equity or Sackers is to pensions. It has lost its way and its clear market position, leaving it competing head on with firms which are multiple times larger. On the current path it will inevitably end up being subsumed into a bigger global firm - since it is far too small to be a global full service firm - losing its identity completely.
