  • Surely it is time for the Lawyer to give Ian Austin another chance to robustly defend his glorious record, his astute financial planning and his talent for leading the firm.........into administration.

  • As a lawyer of some 20 years standing, I don't really think that you trying to stoke the fires surrounding the fall out of Halliwells by goading firms into 'internecine conflict' is very becoming. I know that the Lawyer wants to generate 'stories' to sell copies etc but surely dragging the profession down into some kind of jungle reality contest isn't a price worth paying. Journalists have a job to do and I gather that certain Halliwells people were not popular but can you restore a little professionalism to the way in which you are portraying what must be difficult times for many innocent members of the profession that supports your journal and upon whose goodwill you rely ?

  • @Anonymous | 17-Nov-2010 8:55 am - People have lost jobs, creditors have been left out of pocket (and there is some dispute about the legality of how this happened in some instances - knowingly running up debts to creditors when you have decided to take your firm into administration), HMRC has lost millions (not to mention RBS). This is the biggest LLP failure in British legal history. I am of the opinion that The Lawyer are meeting a public interest requirement in observing closely what has happened post-administration. The journalism has not been incendiary as you imply, but has been fair and accurate and highly revealing.
