  • Is it true that the former managing partner of Dewey London abandoned ship al la Francesco Schettino of the Costa Concordia?

  • So it's the Halliwells' line-up reconstituted. Let's hope they get it right this time. For those who enjoy such things, [2012] EWHC 1194 (Ch) provides an interesting insight on BDO's pursuit of claims.... Oh, and if you're a departing partner in the UK from Deweys, make sure you get a deal done now on your current accounts.

  • "London HR manager Karen Morrissey is thought to be playing a central role in relocating staff, while former City chief Peter Sharp is also involved in finding new homes for trainees."
    and
    "Dewey, Camerons and BDO declined to comment."
    Gosh, I wonder who the "source" of this story might be?

  • Peter Sharp's behaviour has been unforgettable. Like Capt. Schettino, he "fell into a lifeboat" and is now "coordinating rescue efforts from the shore". He should have stayed onboard at Dewey London until all trainees were placed with other firms.

  • @Gonzo1, not quite true. The captain of the Concordia did not call his crew together to assure them he was going nowhere shortly before doing just that.

  • A leader shouldn't defect in the middle of a crisis.

  • This sad spectacle has established beyond doubt that "leaders" were in fact somewhat thin on the ground at Dewey, donchyathink?

  • For those in the know, the last comment is not strictly correct. While management ran for the lifeboats and sailed away from the good ship Dewey, certain others stepped up to the bridge to lead the rescue efforts and look after those remaining onboard. They have our gratitude for the leadership that they are showing.

  • LOL the Dewey partners should ask the former Halliwells partners about BDO. I am sure the references will be glowing.
