  • Brave enough to cut partners.

    It might be painful now, but in the long term Hill Dickinson will become a better firm.

  • Wonder if they'd be kind enough to split the "Partner" cull between equity and salaried?

  • ...but the Monaco and Piraeus offices are key to the business, obviously!

    How much of this stemmed from taking on part of Halliwells?

    "A sensitive time for all involved" but you aren't losing your job, David. Why is there no management responsibility in law firms.

  • It's a brave move if they are cutting the equity partners (that's a much smaller pool than the "partner" one).

  • What about the Piraeus and Monaco offices? Hubris comes to mind.

    How much of this stems from taking over part of Halliwells?

    How long does the Sheffield office have to last?

  • Ok - they can cut under performing partners but the antiquated decision making infrastructure and aloof culture still exists. They are relevant in the marine world. Reducing influence in the (unprofitable) insurance world and unheard of in any other. When I would meet and introduce myself to the business community in Liverpool I was often met with a 'Hill who'?

  • Yes, brave move but perhaps too little too late. To compete in the modern marine sector they need to be braver with the surgeon's knife and cut their regional offices or they risk losing their highly poachable top talent in London

  • They are still the best Dickinson, by some margin.

  • Years and years of growing by random acquisitions is perhaps finally catching up with them.

  • I despair at some of the legal sector's PR:
    “Accordingly it has been necessary for us to proactively manage the business to ensure the stability of the firm as a whole and to enable us to continue to further invest in the business in the future”.
