The associates are worked to the bone and then discarded like the workers from the mills in the past, or are being “forced” to accept new voluntary terms. All Partners should be holding their heads in shame at these proposals and instead consider taking a 25% pay cut each you can well afford it. The associates have worked hard for you give them a break. When the good times return we will remember you.

Addleshaws was one of the first firms to address over capacity in the downturn by taking 19 partners (over 10% of the partnership) out of the business, before anyone else’s role was looked at. These proposals look practical and sensible to me – for those who are in teams with litte to do they safeguartd a job when the alternative is redundancy. Or does ANON live in never-never land where everyone can have a job whether or not there is any work to do? Get real.
