  • And good luck to Walter Cha, a safer pair of hands than the other option they had.

  • Just read an article saying a top 50 firm was being created, and just wanted to say that legal 500 plus another legal 500 does not really equate to a top 50 law firm.

  • If Walter is heading up the combined firm, it is clear which firm is in charge overall.

  • ...in which case, it would make more sense to carry on with Blake Lapthorn as a name. Glad to see a minority in charge, though. Not an event that occurs at the average firm.

  • Having worked at both Morgan cole and Blake Lapthorn I can safely say the two firms are perfectly suited to each other. Boyes Turner certainly made the right decision not getting involved there, although apparently they are actively seeking merger partners still. Seems to be the way forward, commercial firms getting bigger whilst the private client work and particularly conveyancing becomes the unfortunate possession of the factory volume companies. So bye bye customer service there then, in the search for profit, profit, profit.
