  • When taken overall, Clarke Willmott's actions are predictable. Family and Crime have been hit extremely hard and will face even greater slices from the knife in the future. We are in difficult times and the light at the end of the tunnel becomes even more dim!

  • I don't see how a new board wanting to readdress its outgoings and strategies after a weak period for the firm and the market in general is such a bad sign.
    Sure, it'll be frustrating for those who have applied/were intending to apply to have to wait a few months longer, but it's not catastrophic.
    Of course, what this does mean is that those applicants will not be able to apply until they will likely have heard from their other chosen firms, which could in turn affect the quality of the 2010 CW intake.
    I suppose we'll have to wait and see.

  • To the above...Clare Willmott don't even practise crime!

    I think they suffered as they have a strong focus in the midlands on house building and construction type clients- which havn't done too well in the global recession.

    At least there is some hope for those who don't manage to secure 2012 training contracts to re-apply a bit later on- although im not too sure the quality will be gr8 for CW

  • Tough times, but that's just a fact. It will all change again and then nobody will remember.

  • This is a further example that the current legal business models (solicitor firms) does not adapt to changing economic climates’. Consequently, either they impose massive job cuts, freeze pay and recruitment, or go to the wall!!
