  • "Crutes are not a Newcastle firm. They are in Gateshead." Get a map! The Crutes head office is next door to the Civic Centre in the centre of Newcastle. Up here we call that Newcastle.

  • Anyone else find it ironic that the firm who thinks Crutes is based in Gateshead is called The Law Map? Sometimes this stuff just writes itself.

  • Oooh somebody's a bit touchy about their roots showing.

    Don't much care if you're in Mayfair, you're still from Gateshead...

  • This may be great news for the senior partners, but the loyal staff within Crutes are very much in the dark over their own futures with regards to jobs. To receive this news at this time of the year is very dissappointing from what is a well regarded Law Firm. Some thought should be given to the colleagues in what is a difficult market place to look for new jobs - if they need to - as yet they don't know one way or the other.
    Come on Crutes you're better than that, let your staff know what the future holds for them.

  • What is with all the Gateshead talk? you are arguing black is white...are you on drugs? Sounds like someone has an axe to grind. Ps the beatles are from manchester...no, no they really are.

  • Well done to Dixon Dees for resisting the merger with DWF. Your all partner based approach will show through!
    Genuinely, I love my ex-firm Dickie Dees and hope they (somehow) get rescued.

  • I'm sure this is a clever acquisition by DWF.

  • I do not understand this oddball Gateshead argument. Well done guys - you're great.

  • Crutes joining dWF is good. Don't listen to them. Rivals are goof.

  • So DWF finally finds its Newcastle bride. After the firm said no to Watson Burton (we cannot deal with you management so we will just pick partners off thanks), Ward Hadaway said no thank you and the Dees was left in Munter's Corner at the school disco, Crutes says yes. Enables DWF to have a proper office in Newcastle now, obtain a decent insurance practice and many sensible lawyers, Crutes gets some clout after doing okay but drifting a bit. Watch Watson Burton's prof indem practice move across now.
