  • "Like all successful global businesses..."
    Being successful is like being ladylike.
    If you have to say you are... then you aren't.

  • DLA is NOT a successful global business. It is a successful business in certain areas.
    Egotistical self-aggrandisement led it to invest in regions where it had no history, no clients, zero experience or local insights, and where it lost a shed full of partners' money. Those who dissented or raised the voice of caution were those who 'did not get the vision'. (And left.) The tragedy is the hard-working non-partner level staff who were shafted in the process.
    The world demand for legal services has shifted. There there is no longer a place in it for law firms in search of a mission..

  • When one reads of "Both fee-earners and back office staff are understood to be at risk of losing their jobs ..." then one next reads of a partner cull.
    Hardly surprising; if you reduce leverage of associates then partners are next in the firing line.
    One wonders which practices will be under the scrutiny of M. Angel .....

  • I see that some still do not get that working in a law firm is not lifetime employment.
    PS: And while I am not a fan of the huge firm model, those of you who think they can do better are free to. Personally, I admire DLA for what it has achieved over a relatively short period, but it's not for everyone.
