Reply Link Jim 10 May 2012 at 09:27 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. Reply Link dragonfly 10 May 2012 at 10:03 Rats leaving sinking ship.

Can creditors recover debts by seizing houses, cars etc of those who orchestrated this mess? Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
