  • Is this really what clients want? Will Cameron's partners be lowering their hourly rates in order to pass the savings on to the client?

    No. Didn't think so.

  • Clients just won't shut up about it, just nag nag nag: "Have you outsourced your IT yet? Why haven't you outsourced your IT yet?" Try to gently move them on to talk about their own deals but instead they just keep on banging on about outsourcing.

  • Some typically reactionary comments to this already... I'm as sceptical as the next person but don't you have to wait to see how this works before condemning it.

    That said, if the upshot is a wave of redundancies that can be passed off as collateral damage from the move then this is really just a smokescreen

  • Good reporting on this so far - please make sure to keep on with the updates during the implementation, as this is when things will really get interesting.

  • And when sensitive data is sold on to the crims in a country without any DPA - then the claims will flow - see the insurers who collect all personal data accessable in offshore unregulated/unprotected markets and the fines regulators then make.

  • Interesting. From someone who has six years in the corporate and legal sectors, I often find it amusing to see business decisions being made by partners. A training in law does not equate to a training in how to run a business, and the partnership model is bizarre.
    Many clients referred to above won't give a toss whether the firm's IT is in-house or not. All they want is the best value for money from their legal provider. The lawyers take that to mean lower fees, so therefore reduce overheads and ensure PEP is kept as high as possible.
    Credit to CMS for looking to improve its structure, but it's clear it's not being undertaken with business acument (especially when glossed up as being a benefit to clients).

  • Pitying the support staff of Cameron McKenna. I made the correct decision to leave months ago. Better job, better pay, better prospects.
