  • 10 partner contributions is one mighty capital injection

  • To be frank, anyone who knows the place knows this is a desperate play. All they are doing is filling the coffers after a bumper crop of exits.

    The fact is the London office needs to go and D&W need to start competing with the rising powers in Scotland i.e. Burness P&W and Brodies.

  • So, with the latest bias towards the Scotland offices, will the dynamic duo finally admit they're shrinking the London office?
    This really is another morale boosting announcement!

    London brought in 40% on the company revenue, is this no longer the case?
    Answers on a recycled post-it please.

  • It is such a shame.

    D&W used to be a powerhouse, but everyone now knows in the market that they are desperate for a merger.

    Shame for those who are left there - some good lawyers need to think about moving on.

  • Sadly I have to agree with anonymous at 9.12am. Once, the notion of a job at Dundas & Wilson would have been the goal of many a lawyer in Scotland. Now, the general feeling seems to be that of a sinking ship deploying its life vests and boats all too late.

    I think the problems rests with nobody really knowing what their focus is anymore. Are they wanting to be the best in Scotland? Or a genuine alternative to some London firms - to paraphrase their vision.

    Speaking from an instructing solicitors view, there are much more appealing sources of legal advice in my industry, that once ran to get support from Dundas. This is from a cost point of view but also, increasingly important, an image point of view.

    I really hope that they can gain some much needed direction and re-establish themselves in the market as leaders once more. I thnk the ever increasing speculation of mergers needs to be addressed, it is clear they want one but seem to uneasy to take the plunge.

    Come on Dundas, it;s time to take back the helm or risk being swallowed up forever.

  • At this rate the only thing left in London will be a shiny reception.
