  • Mark Owen is a high calibre lateral hire. This really is a coup for Dickinson Dees.
    What confuses me is that it is well known in the market that Dickinson Dees is heavily over partnered. Therefore once the recruitment drive is over will they (finally) look to move on their less successful partners?

  • Would it matter? If DD are preared to invest considerably in Leeds, who cares if the HQ is Leeds or Newcastle.

  • DD must be guaranteeing his pay for at least a couple of years, as they will need to do to persuade any other decent "recent senior recruitments" to work for them.
    DD = the next Dewey Leboeuf.

    Are you joking?
    Watson Burton have four lawyers in Leeds. Pinsents and the Shed in the same category as DWF, ha ha.
    What about Squire Sanders and Walker Morris?

  • Gold, Silver and Bronze Circles? Watson Burton above Walker Morris???? Watson Burton are in a Danteesque Circle of Hell in Leeds. No Gordons? Squires? I'd rate good old Leeds stalwarts like Luptons above Watson Burton.

  • To be fair I never listed Walker Morris. I reckon they are on the edge of the silver circle, in danger of slipping into the bronze circle.
    I just listed some firms. You're right that Watson Burton are propping up the market. I didn't list all the firms because I didn't have the time.

  • So why did DD go to York in the first place?

    Was it just bad judgement and this is them correcting that?
