  • 'This isn’t a reaction to poor trading but quite the reverse. It’s driven by a desire to bring 21st century working practices into our business.'

    So we should expect an announcement when your accounts are published that you increased turnover? No, I didn't think so.

    The fact is that you have not done your homework, if you dug a little deeper into what you are planning and ignored the 'sales talk' you would of seen that bringing in Intelligent Office can only lead to problems for your company, and there are numerous examples.

    Maybe if the fee earners spent more time doing what they were paid to do this drastic attempt at a solution would not have been necessary in areas where your firm 'was' seen as quite a good respectable company.

  • It is only a matter of time befor IO talk you into moving all levels of support over to them, doomed to failure.

  • Just an idea but maybe you should have picked the phone up and spoken to Andrew Manning at Bevan Brittan.

  • My understanding from what I've heard is that the board are expecting the fee earners to do more of the admin by making the ratio of PA's to FE's even greater than they are. I say from what 'I've heard' because we still haven't been told the details.

  • Can I just say as a client of Wragge & Co I am appalled by that last comment

  • at a time like this, with so much uncertainty any negative thoughts, comments and opinions do not help the support staff at Wragge & Co. I for one think that the process has so far been dealt with the best it can be, of course it is going to be a tough time for all the support staff, but rest assured there has been constant reassurance that they are doing their best for their staff. Yes out sourcing has ended badly in the past for certain firms, but it has also ended well. The suggestions for what they can provide have so far been good to hear.

  • @Client, there is every prospect that @ConcernedFeeEarner (who is obviously charming as well as fabulously witty) either is nothing to do with Wragge & Co or is in a minority of one. I have been instructed by Wragge & Co on occasion and I do not recognise that sort of sentiment amongst their fee-earners. ps I accept that you may not be a client!

  • "Maybe if the fee earners spent more time doing what they were paid to do this drastic attempt at a solution would not have been necessary" - what a moronic statement.

  • I challenge anyone to cite where outsourcing has worked well for a firm. The recent spate of Integreon dumping is just indicative of firms waking-up. Outsourcing only increases costs by reducing headcount. The move to IO shows that the firm doesn't give a toss about its staff and that it doesn't even understand what they do! Good luck with that one.
