  • No partners losing their jobs then? Just fee-earners and supports staff - what a surprise. Gutless. Firm is a mis-managed sinking ship, people should get out asap

    God, I'm so thankful I'm not a law student in today's world. What a waste of money it is!!
    Getting a job in law is tough even in good times.

  • To be fair, in theory at least, partners are the ones bringing in the work, so it makes no sense to cut their positions.
    In theory.
    Anyway where is there to go from the sinking ship?
    Doom. Etc.

  • Anonymous, I don't know, like many others I will find out next week after what will no doubt be a fairly conducted consulation process. I doubt I will go though. These ineffecutal and failing partners still need gimps like me to do their non-value grunt work while they sit around on their backsides crying over their figures and write-offs

    Well, yes, as they're failing by NOT getting in the work, so get rid of one useless partner, you save half-a-dozen assistants, support, whatever...

  • I particularly like the comment from Scep Tick. Well-said! Spot on! It is better to have 2-3 partners who really generate business than 10-15 who are just sitting there thinking about retreats and other perks!

  • The partners own the business, and got there by hard graft, so they get to fire people. Its the real world, and all you soft-in the-head socialists should wake up to it.

  • Staff morale is at an all time low. Some huge mistakes made at management level and everyone else is picking up the pieces
