  • For many firms in the insurance market this is the only way to combat rubbish profit margins and keep people in work. Its good to see Mills & Reev trying to be innovative and grow rather than be pessimistic and look to merge. I predict that most of the top ten firms will have low value costs bases within the next five years as clients push down on rising legal spend.

  • @Anonymous | 1-Aug-2012 4:28 pm - There is nothing "pessimistic" about mergers - mergers are simply a rational and inevitable response to market trends and economic realities.
    To not merge is not optimistic, but myopic.

  • Oh come on, M&R are not exactly being innovative here. Parabis have 500 paralegals in low cost centres. That's why Duke Street value Parabis at £200m are are giving the King of Low Cost (a certain Leeds based Solicitor) a chunk of change for his business. Yawn.
