Backstabbing and defamatory behaviour based on absolutely nothing in order to not give me what had been promised in contracts and protracted discussions. When I asked for evidence and proof of so called ‘issues’ with me there was a deafening silence and a ‘oh we didn’t really mean it’. We have slandered you behind your back(to everyone) based on nothing but because we are worried you might sue us we didn’t really mean it. Law firms are badly run, opaque and full of badly behaved individuals. I am not sure why anybody bothers with them. They also ruin people’s lives.

When it is used, as here, for some very unethical behaviour to maintain a facade for a failing legal firm, then we should look to legislation.
