  • This episode, and the comments made about it, would appear to demonstrate (yet again) that some basic ethical understanding of one's duties to one's firm and one's partners needs to be incorporated into the continuing education program of senior lawyers.

  • When LawVest launched to much fanfare a number of people said they wondered if the whole thing would blow up in everyone's faces. I didn't give the doubters much credence, but they were right.
    And it took exactly one week for it to happen....
    That was quick.

  • One wonders who advised LawVest on its establishment/funding etc. Surely not DLA, one would hope.

  • Time will tell if this was a sound idea - just poorly executed. However, just may be the investors consider their actions independent of the partnership. If that were the case where did the DLA 'association' come from?

  • Like HammondsDirect? Where is the gross miss-management, over charging of customers and failure to disclose payments to estate agents to name but a few of HD's errors.

  • And who advised Karl Chapman that "the share register of LawVest is a confidential matter”?
    Surely not DLA? The register of members is open to inspection - Companies (Company Records) Regulations 2008.

  • Did Tony A back the wrong horse and will he leave the partnership this week along with NIgel only time will tell.
    Who is sitting in the wings at DLA to take it to the next stage.
    The question is who runs DLA is it a few chosen partners who oversee billing machines/ team leaders/ junior partners call them what you want.
    Is this another Arthur Anderson moment !
