  • hardly a surprise - when looking at this potential merger with individual firm PEPs at the sub-£200k level, it is difficult to see how the joined up firm was going to substantially increase this when there is little obvious business case.

  • Boyes Turner LLP: the last firm to comment, and the only comment that counts!

  • I think that is absolutely the right decision. It leaves BT free to explore tie ups with city firms (which might actually add a new dimension to the firm), and does not exactly bar them from talks with any individuals or teams from BL, MC or others.

  • If Boyes Turner want to expand, or need to bring in more revenue, why not just recruit solicitors who can cover broader geographical areas, but still commute to Reading. Lots of very good lawyers out there in this recession who would go the extra mile ...

  • With profits said to be roughly equal to debt, I think expansive recruitment unlikely.

  • One step forward two steps back - that sums up Morgan Cole who have off-loaded many solicitors and offices and who now want to double up with Blake Lapthorn. This literally is going around in (legal) circles, not to mention playing with careers.

  • I am not exactly certain what a merger between MC and BL could achieve either.

  • Boyes Turner should simply expand by recruitment, and embracing technology ie. home working, remote working, lawyers-on-demand models etc. That way they can have staff in any geographical location without additional property overheads. Technology is the way forward for lawyers, and not the standard merge & purge!

  • I agree. All you see nowadays is "merge & purge" ie. firms merging or take-overs, and then staff being culled to avoid "duplication". Somebody do something original please.
