  • Addleshaw Goddard seems to be in full scale meltdown.
    They should have used the good years to do some mergers and gain critical mass.
    Complacency has led straight to crisis.

  • But despite appearances to the contrary the bb litigation looks to have been good business. Agree that Leeds is a bit of an issue but hardly meltdown per se.

  • I suspect AG don't need two offices up north so it wouldn't surprise if they consolidate. Northerners are not great travellers so some will undoubtedly go elsewhere,

  • "AG don't need two offices up north" shows a Southerner's lack of understanding. Most large professional firms work from a Leeds and a Manchester office, each covering one side of the pennines but with a lot of cross-working and supporting each other with specialists. Northerners do a lot of travelling but clients resist crossing the pennines.

  • This simply reflects the changes in the construction industry. As DLA says they'll be focussing on the Middle East and Asia markets.

  • As far as the band is concerned, I am sure it will live on in a new form. Simon Palmer had already been replaced on bass and a new lead singer was long overdue!!

  • I suspect the departure of the older generation will allow the AG team to forge ahead with new ideas and go on to build a bigger and stronger business

  • The new AG band, the "No Homers" is already up and running with a full line up.

  • "They have established strong reputations not only in the UK, but also the Middle East and Asia which are key markets.”
    Kings of Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, Sheffield and Leeds. Hilarious.
