Resignations – what the heck does that mean? who in their right mind would ‘resign’ in the middle of a downturn?! Reply Link Anonymous 4 August 2008 at 18:58 another dig at BB *sigh* Strange sense of news values that views the actions of the second from bottom firm as being of more interest than those of the firm at the bottom itself – and requiring a quote as well! another week, another dig. Oh well. Reply Link Forster father 4 August 2008 at 21:27 hmm… Forsters is basically a property boutique, isn’t it? They must be needing hundreds of trainees right now to handle the boom in the property markets – ah, hold on. Forget it. Reply Link Sarah 5 August 2008 at 09:29 Trainee retention – another example of balanced reporting I agree with the previous commentator… I used to value The Lawyer for its balanced reporting and inside track on topical issues within the legal community but over recent months its singular targeting of Bevan Brittan has first disappointed then angered me; particularly the personal nature of the attacks on individuals and the lack of accuracy or balance. A lot of firms are adjusting to a changing market as a result of economic factors, many with more redundancies than BB but what attention does that warrant from The Lawyer – None.

Interesting that all these firms have chosen to be transparent and still get a kicking, yet the firms who haven’t disclosed their stats don’t warrant a mention. Where are the figures for CC, Freshfields, A&O, Slaughters, Herbert Smith, Norton Rose, Dentons….the list is almost endless. Reply Link resignator during downturn 7 August 2008 at 12:35 resignation means redundant further to skeptices comments, “resignation”- “redundant” – same but different.
