  • It makes slightly more sense to be off-loading injury teams than buying in this climate.

  • The Defendant Insurance Division at MC has been faltering for years: no strategy and no investment. You can only reap what you sow.

  • The defendant insurance liability solicitors' team (who worked under the then head of FOIL in the Thames Valley) all tired of the lack of investment, lack of strategy and the inability of the partners to attract work, and have all moved on in recent years. With practically all the injury related defendant fee-earners in both Cardiff and Bristol departing, I am not sure what that leaves Morgan Cole to "refocus" on?

  • It has to be said, and this is as good an opportunity as any, that there has not simply been "natural wastage" over the last few years in relation to the defendant liability lawyers in the Thames Valley, but a culture of bullying and victimisation at MC: the downsizing I think has been long in the planning, and in the execution.

  • The defendant insurance division at MC had major insurance clients, and was very profitable for a long time, but this is what lack of investment under Carr has done.

  • Even the head of the top rated credit hire team in the Thames Valley has exited from the partnership: always a sign of lack of faith.

  • Carr will no doubt be thrilled at the salary saving.

  • It makes sense for BLM or DAC to make an announcement, but I am not sure why MC needs to do so. Perhaps the teams were looking elsewhere or head hunted, and MC are trying to save face by making these moves look pre-planned, and/or "strategic".

  • I distinctly recall the TV insurance partners running down the TV defendant team: a combination of natural wastage, then pushing by bullying, victimising/starving or work etc. All this occurred after opening their newer "flagship" Bristol insurance office, with recruitment continuing there. Interesting to see that Bristol has not worked out for them either, and so there is a God!

  • If you look at the figures, most of the Bristol & Cardiff insurance division is going, so with most of the TV insurance team having left, "refocusing" is surely a bluff?
