  • So not a takeover then! ROFLMFAO.
    Jabba can spin all he likes - and boy does he - but any fool can flog the family silver.

  • Can this dark comedy get any more embarassing for BLG's management? Or do they believe their own spin? A pay rise for top partners on the back of a firesale is hardly "an incredible amount achieved".

  • Agree totally with the comment about selling the family silver. Anyone can negotiate a sell-off. Navigating through difficult times takes skill.

  • Don't blame Konsta and Jabba. Its Kennan Michel and Richard Dedman, and their predecessors, who were in charge when the rot set in.

  • Loving the Lawyer's Zara Philips / Tindall comparison. Anyway, what's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Or something....

  • Completely endorse the comments re the Dedman/Michel era. That is when Clydes pulled so far ahead of BLG that the gap was unbridgeable. Hence the decision to pull in Clint Evans as an accountant CEO but that was too late and ineffective anyway because accountants can't run law firms. Jabbari was a specialist lawyer with magic circle past: they wanted one of their own.

  • I don't understand the brain dead comments above about 'selling the family silver', nothing is being sold at all, the partners of BLG will be partners in the new firm.

  • Are BLG keeping their regional offices because the focus seems international now?

    I think the best description of your comment is "disingenuous".

  • Jabba's quote above that this is a continuation of restructuring is an absolute classic!!
    Presumably the new term for demolition in the construction industry is 'ongoing renovations''...
