If I were a client I’d be moving sharpish. Symptomatic of a wider crisis in my opinion within Maclays: can’t find a merger; unhappy staff; partner defections (the whole ip team pretty much jumped ship recently); no staff development; rubbish salaries; ghost managers. This firm is heading down and those that can are getting out. Reply Link Anonymous 20 August 2012 at 10:22 Talk about making 2 + 2 = 5 Jim. Wouldn’t happen to work for a local competitor would you! Reply Link Who is Jim 22 August 2012 at 15:00 Maclay Murray & Spens appear to have done exactly the right thing in the circumstance as an outsider. I certainly would not cease instructions. If Jim is a competitor I would be interested who he is, as negative publicity is not ethically right as a method of seeking new clients ! Looking at the Scottish Law Society directory one could hazard a guess. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
