  • EVERYONE must read this article. Brilliantly thorough and articulate as to how matters evolved to where we are at present day. Thank you! I will print it out and frame it!

  • A well written and thought-provoking piece. Unfortunately I don't think it, or the battle it references, will make any difference to the outcome of the underlying war. Lawyers are an easy target and elicit little sympathy or respect from the general public. There is a continuing misconception that lawyers are, without exception, pompous, cold-hearted automatons who spend every waking moment thinking-up ways to enrich themselves at the expense of others and who produce little, if anything, of worth. Admittedly, there is a significant element among the legal profession with respect to whom that would be fair comment, but there are also a lot of genuine, hard-working people who are paid a relative pittance for their efforts. They will never, in my view, achieve the recognition they deserve other than from the relatively small group of people they help.

  • Very disappointing that Sir Nigel Knowles' article "The end of the legal market as we know it is nigh" captured the imagination of so many whilst this brilliant piece about a real problem attracted so few comments. Sadly this speaks volumes about the huge number of solicitors who care far more about designer suits than fairness and equality.
