Reading through the list of firms who usually advise Arriva you would have to say this is too big a deal to risk with the smaller firms. For the big ticket work, go to the experts.

I think local firms like Dixon Dees are better value for conveyancing and debt collection and such like as they have lower charge out rates and better volume capabilities.

Big ticket work can be done in the regions but only at a select few law firms. Reply Link Anonymous 10 April 2010 at 19:27 Another day, another rejection for Jon Flynn of Dickenson Dees and his team. They would have loved to have won this work. It would appear that couldn’t convince Arriva they were a safe pair of hands for a high profile project. After being rejected in the senior partner vote – he must be wondering what he has done for things to go wrong in less than three weeks. He has my sympathy. I hope he dusts himself down and his luck changes soon. This must hurt when Reply Link Pumper 8 September 2010 at 19:39 Arriva would be well advised to stick with Herbies over Newcastle’s Nasty Firm.
