Maybe the Exec should take a look at themselves? Reply Link Anonymous 10 September 2009 at 16:24 Surely it was double that figure, with 90 support staff and more compromised out??? Next the rest will be down to 4 days week (still 1800 chargeable hours a year) and then shit (oops) shut Cambridge Newcastle and Nottingham.

Are there any associates actually left or is it just the partners. Reply Link Anonymous 11 September 2009 at 16:04 Any associate would need to think very carefully before joining this ship. It seems to be treating its staff with utter contempt. Whatever its partnership might think, Eversheds is a decidedly average brand and its value as a destination for any decent lawyer is dropping fast.

As for considering flexible working – well I doubt it will offer flexibility for the employees selected. Reply Link Larry La-La-Land Lamprey 21 October 2009 at 17:47 How many jobless lawyers now?
