  • So let me get this right: you lose the ENTIRE litigation team to Berg Legal.....then hire the one guy on everybodies lips as being at the heart of the fiasco, and with the biggest image problem in the whole of the NW legal market? Hmmmmmmm. Way to go...

  • what is the strategic development which Heatons needs Ian to help with? How to ramp up the debt, secure the best reverse premium possible and walk away from an insolvent law firm and leave decent hard working people to default on their mortgages?
    Heatons this is the biggest own goal since Tommy Hutchinson scored against his own team in the f.a cup final, congratulations in taking over from Halliwells in becoming the most hated law firm in Manchester over night.

  • "Snares" is appropriate in these circumstances - or what about "manages to get another job in a third rate firm against all the odds, to fend off bankruptcy"?

  • I left Halliwells many years ago but one thing I do recall was that Austin was a really nice guy and much respected. Sometimes good things happen to good people.

  • Can't see this as anything other than a return to an obscurity which is richly deserved. One hopes the SRA will be examining the circumstances of Halliwell's demise closely. I am sure The Lawyer will be.
