  • Whatever happened to the captain going down with the ship?

  • The dissolution of Deweys really does leave a nasty taste in the mouth. The management responsible for the absolute clusterf**k that is occuring are all swanning off into highly paid new roles whilst the staff, trainees and majority of lawyers will be left up the creek.

    Since the authorities have allowed the Halliwells partners to carry on regardless (so far), can the Dewey management expect the same laissez-faire response? Steve Davis seems to be a fall guy.

    Corporate governance at its best; Dewey Lebeouf.

  • lets see
    these guys borrowed money to fund extravagant draws
    the firm can't pay the money back
    the partners leave the firm - in effect screwing the lenders (who are not without fault) (unless there is personal liability)
    and they are welcomed with open arms by other firms
    what is wrong with this picture? anyone?

  • Are partners' personally liable for the firm's unpaid debts? Can creditors recover debts by seizing houses, cars etc of those who orchestrated this mess?
