  • Curious that this article does not refer to the extensive redundancy "consultation", the dramatic cost-cutting measures, the outsourcing or the fact that the departing partners (Caldwell, Verrill, Brandt, Willis etc) were the intellectual backbone of the London firm.

    This sounds a bit like a press release...

  • Or Richard Lampert a Property heavy hitter off to Eversheds when his garden is tidy.

    Errr same number of partners, PEP down 35%, Turnover at the £52mm mark. Staff static. Really?

    Pike was property finance at SH rebranded now as restructuring, odd stuff.

    Wasn't it 57 redundancies. Is the message that the firm is the same size as in 2007 when at its zenith but with a similar headcount and nearly £20m less turnover?

    Come on The Lawyer where is your journalistic deep cynicism when needed!

  • The firm's diversity record, particularly in London is shocking. Two female partners in total in the London office. 100 per cent of laterals since 2006 were male. And nothing is being done to address this.
