  • The legal detective has got it from me! An orchestrated move by those who know best how to exploit the finer details of the law in order to maximise partner returns in a pre-arranged deal!

  • Nice one. Partners tax unpaid so partners now need to pay their tax from their taxed income on the basis they were remunerated net of the tax which was supposedly retained by the firm but which will have funded working capital (and drawings).
    Ponzi, misery and a board which must be sweating.
    This will be as messy as the Halliwells debacle. I wonder whether there is a reverse premium in amongst it all.

  • Unlikely all of Cobbetts trainees will get spaces with DWF.

    However probably worth telephoning Dickinson Dees as their senior partner told The Lawyer 2B in early January that the new Bond Dickinson firm will be taking on lots more trainees.

  • Company Records show that Leaitherland started his 'legal life' running a Will Writing service with one other person who appears to be his Mother. This company was dissolved in 1997 - a year or so after inception. Now look where Leaitherland is today - about to to 'rescue' a large prestigious company from administration. Inspirational or what.....
