    Whilst few will meet this with the warm glow of schadenfreude which greeted the demise of Halliwells, my experience is that whilst the firm had some good people, it also had more than its fair share of dull, uninspiring plodders - and in this market that is not going to be enough to see you prosper.

  • Obviously more to this than difficult market conditions given that their results seem on track. Presumably some debts have either been called in or maybe they are facing a large defection?
