  • Surely a TUPE claim for the SF staff who worked in the Edinburgh office?

  • The way staff have been treated is nothing short of disgraceful. I believe that many staff in Edinburgh would have a TUPE claim and I'm sure D&W know that too!

  • Good to see D&W taking on non-partners and trainees. A mature and responsible approach in stark contrast to the the shabby and opportunistic MMS. If only they could have found a home for some of the non-legal staff too.

  • Same was done in Glasgow - complete stitch up of staff who received no redundancy pay or pay in lieu of notice - in fact not even paid up to the end of the month!

  • Carson said in a statement: “We’ll be looking forward to working together in the coming months to provide the best service and value to all our clients.”
    Surely you should just work towards keeping yourself, and D&W in business? From one sinking ship, quick everyone aboard a sinking life raft...

  • The managing partner of Semple Fraser was able to face his staff and blatantly lie about his and others future positions with mms and dw He showed no remorse in what he was doing a bit of I'm all right too bad about the staff who were left with nothing. So well done mms and dw for taking part in this it sure will he good publicity for your firms and as for the quality and integrity of lawyers you now have employed good luck with that you will need it

  • Anonymous (15-Mar-2013 4:53pm) - you don't really think modern legal Firms like MMS or D&W concern themselves about quality or integrity, do you? All the marketing puff about focussing on quality, smart people etc has about as much substance as a pair of Pound Shop socks. It's all about sales and how much the handful of partners who have real influence can wring out of the clients for a particular year. Some of the guff these people come up with would make P T Barnum squirm in embarrassment.
