  • Where is James Palmer in all of this? How is it that he no longer has a management role in the merged firm? Are the Herbies partners sending him a message?

  • Post-merger redundencies have already started. Support staff first. Fee earners next. No shortage of Herbies and Freehills resumes sitting on my desk.

  • Shouldn't they have appointed a proper English gentleman as managing partner of Australia? Afterall, this was a reverse takeover wasn't it?
