It’s such an ugly building. Reply Link Anonymous 7 March 2013 at 16:54 I wonder if there are any good pubs around there? Reply Link Edie Britt 7 March 2013 at 17:08 The landlord’s agents will be having a field day with this one. Multiple competing tenants. However FFW will hope they don’t read about all the merger rumours involving FFW, not good for covenant strength etc. Reply Link Anonymous 7 March 2013 at 17:08 Why don’t they merge and move to some old building. They are both well used to dumpy offices. Reply Link Anonymous 7 March 2013 at 17:23 Gicen that CMCK is supposed to be a “European” firm wouldn’t it be better off moving to the St Pancras area. There are new offices being developed and it would have great links via Eurostar. Reply Link Ann Onymous 8 March 2013 at 11:30 FFW are on the brink of collapse. Reply Link John Onymous 8 March 2013 at 18:07 I guess the CMS layoffs were necessary for the move… law firms always showing good taste… Reply Link Anonymous 20 March 2013 at 16:20 FFW are on the brink. Turnover is down, profits are down, WIP is way down, debtors are way up, ( hence no special drawings!), key partners are exiting, management is at war with itself, their Finance Director has resigned and the historically most profitable part of the firm – Personal Injury and Medical Negligence – is facing a pretty dire future together with all similar practices. Add to that their reputation as a nasty vipers nest that no other law firm will merge with, if the landlord has any sense it will not touch them with a barge pole.
