  • A classic example of how not to run a mid-firm and likely a sign that we will see increasing divergence in the market away from the middling players. Big corporates will always go to the magic circle et al for their major projects, but there will definitely be increasing room at the bottom for smaller, more canny firms to take on the work that the likes of Dundas have been getting. It doesn't take a genius client to see that the likes of Field Grieb can do some of this stuff for a fraction of the price. And how!

  • 'The likes of Field Grieb'? The likes of WHO?
    I would lay my mother's soul on Hardingham's real name being either 'Field' or 'Grieb'.

    Then you clearly aren't much of an expert on the South West Kent / North East Sussex legal market (excluding Tunbridge Wells)

  • Why no reporting of Hardie's - taking out and shooting them - comment. Staggering lack of awareness/compassion.

  • A firm going nowhere at increasing speed. If they don't their act together ASAP they will be the next Halliwells.

  • Whatever the view is on this firm, this story is awful and I feel for the people who are going to lose their jobs.

  • A firm led by donkeys. Used to be a proud and decent firm, now reduced to confusion and PR disasters.
    "Mr Hardie said: "We are not calling it a programme. It is not one thing being done to a lot of different people. It is individual discussions with individual outcomes.""
    You can call it what you like David, the result is the same.
    Chairman David Hardie told The Herald: "It is not that we have taken out 30 people and shot them. It is about how can we find the best use of them for our business or do we have to let some of them go?"
    A Clarkson moment.

  • Despicable, crass, short-sighted and incompetent management.
