  • Where does the people it affect most stand we have not been notified of any merger at Cobbetts and I think it is disguisting to find information on the net before staff are briefed on this matter. What does the merger mean for us? Is our jobs safe? What happens next?

  • It is utterly disgusting to keep asking management to clarify the position on the Cobbetts merger, only for them to fall silent. No announcement, no reassurances, no nothing. Just goes to show that there is no respect for the workers and as to the person who states that morale isn't low, I'm sorry but you are either blinkered or you are management!

  • At least other firms want to merge with Cobbetts.
    DWF looked at all the potential merger partners in Newcastle and chose Crutes. That speaks volumes about the financial problems facing some of the other firms.

  • Mmmm a certain lack of logic to the last comment.Maybe all the other Newcastle firms didn't want to merge with DWF and/or weren't as desperate as Crutes.Size isn't everything in life and DWF seem to be growing for the sake of growing which will backfire on them eventually.

  • To be fair, I doubt Muckle and Eversheds wanted to merge with DWF.
    However most people know that in the Newcastle market there were some big firms that were desperate to merge with DWF.
    One wonders what will happen to them now.
