    Dear A&O lawyers, for when the time comes, I suggest you start reading up on the Links redundancy to see how not to do things. If ours is anything to go by, the consultation process will be rushed, the Employee Reps will be appointed by the firm and will be those not prepared to do a good job in case it puts their jobs on the line. Everything will be hush hush and the partners will not provide clear answers on how they arrived at their conclusions.











    Good Luck.

    Dear Telly Tubby, thanks for your good wishes - same to you.


    So far so good with the A&O process, the employee reps are going to be elected by the associates and support staff so unless A&O engages in Mugabe-like election fraud (and even I wouldn't suspect management of that) then we should have a decent say. Whether the reps do a good job remains to be seen, but the firm has already said it's going to be "generous" to those departing - whatever that means...

    Perhaps they shouldn't have (over)expanded so much in the first place...

    A&O´s actions are a mere farce - they get rid of their staff but at the same time they still hire young professionals. Have a look at their website: they praise themselves for caring about their people but quite obviously, they don´t give a damn!
