  • The first of many.
    Maybe it's also time that Dickinson Dees transferred their self-proclaimed title ("the North East's Leading Law Firm") across to DWF? After all, they are the bigger firm.

  • Congratulations to both Deborah and to DWF.
    I guess DDs expected to lose some senior staff to lateral hires when the DWF-Crutes announcement was made. It's worrying that the heads of profitable teams are leaving, especially given the wider picture.

  • It feels like things are really changing in the North East legal market.

  • I'd be interested to know where DWF are going to find lots of new banking clients in Newcastle.
    Surely DWF needs to bring in some heavy-weight corporate and property lawyers before sorting out its banking offering?

  • maybe they will send some of the Cobbetts lot up there should the merger be completed. Bet the debt levels and leasehold liabilities will look a tad tasty should they complete that one.

  • Some of these comments are laughable. It's common knowledge in the market that Kirtley left DDs a long time ago. Let's hope her new practice does better than her last "profitable" team.

  • Are you saying that this is not "a Dickinson Dees hire"? If she had left, why keep her details on the website?

  • And the Chambers 2012 directory rates her as being the Key Individual for the only Band 1 Banking & Finance practice in the North East

  • Those new premises look very big compared to Crutes. I'd hazard that a few other partners are about to move across.

  • What a shame that one particular firm in Newcastle always bad-mouths staff who have the temerity to leave.
