This one will move them up to 54th in the rankings, ahead of Keoghs, Farrers as well as Dickie Dees & Bond Pearce (before their merger). Reply Link Anonymous 8 October 2012 at 13:25 Henmans is a firm that has had great potential but no credible leadership or plan for growth over the last 5 years and has drifted rather aimlessly, with turnover, profit and head count down.. This merger was really the only option. Freeths will provide more commercially driven expertise direction.

Reply Link Anonymous 8 October 2012 at 20:50 Henmans previously always had a good reputation within the legal sector, not only for its quality legal advice but also as a good employer with a high regard for staff welfare and a minimal staff turnover. It does seem a shame that a firm who have been established for well over a hundred years, should choose to be a bolt-on for a larger firm seeking an instant office in a region they currently don’t have presence in. Whilst Freeth are no doubt pleased with the acquisition of a new office with minimal effort, I’m sure Henmans are equally pleased to be moving up the rankings without having to do any of the leg work. After all, if you’ve only got little legs why run when you can get a piggy back? Reply Link Chester E.

Reply Link Anonymous 11 October 2012 at 10:13 If the statement is valid, the source is irrelevant. I always thought Henmans and Freeths were very good firms. If I put my name on this, would you attack my comment or claim I was emboldened by a sense of getting credit for what I write?
