New blood in the partnership ranks is exactly what Dixon Dees needs. Reply Link Anonymous 10 May 2011 at 13:49 I’m surprised that they haven’t made up anyone at their London office. Reply Link Anonymous 10 May 2011 at 17:12 what the heck does “director” mean anyway…? Reply Link Anonymous 10 May 2011 at 22:26 Anon 1:49 – I heard Dixon Dees made up their whole London office in 2009. Reply Link Anonymous 11 May 2011 at 07:55 In 2009 in the majority of departments there were more partners than assistants. That’s why they had to invent the new position of director.

They then planned to promote existing partners to “Megapartners”. This was abaondoned due to so-called “practical difficulties” (did not want to spend money changing so many business cards).

If they crack that and Middlesborough they’ve got all key markets well and truly covered.

Still, at least the firm has taken the next step towards its goal of a workforce comprising entirely of partners.
