  • What a disappointing legacy for Elizabeth Carr: thriving insurance to no insurance.

  • I wonder what Freud would make of this modern day legal obsession with size?

  • In reality, a top 40/50 firm comes about because of highly diligent and dedicated lawyers, services which are finely attuned to clients' needs, unequalled legal expertise, market foresight, strategy and overall good management.

    These kinds of talks, mergers and bolt-ons are just the cheats way into the top 40.

  • It is interesting that there is, as yet, no comment from BT, and only from BL and MC.

  • I would look really carefully at the insurance revenue from the TV, Cardiff & Bristol
    at Morgan Cole in previous years, and then consider the balance sheet without it.

  • Hang on a minute, Boyes won "Regional Law Firm of the Year 2012", did they not?

    If I were them, and if I were minded to merge, I would be talking to city firms who were in the market for a top quality regional base.

    Nothing to gain from a merger with lesser regional firms, within similar sectors.

  • They also won it in 2010 if my memory serves me well.

  • The departure of Bristol and Cardiff insurance teams is, effectively, a vote of no-confidence.
    That too when the current managing partner is the former head of insurance.
    If ever there was a time for the remaining sectors to explore their options with other firms, whether as individuals or teams, it is now.
    I cannot see another firm taking on Morgan Cole lock, stock and barrel.
