Hopelessly sub scale and with no chance of achieving scale or an international platform organically. But far too big and generalist to be a boutique. Why hasn’t this firm already merged? What are they waiting for? Very poor management and a complete lack of vision.

Reply Link Anonymous 10 July 2012 at 14:48 This is a total farce. If your PEP is in decline just ruddy well accept it and make proper plans to correct that trend rather than shrinking your partnership. Stupid and myopic.

It seems some of the above have been on the wrong end of some “management”.

It is naive to think this should not form some part of the plan to turn things around. It should not be the only plan, but in all modern law firms, which are multi million pound businesses, they have to prune the partnership in order to survive if they are underperforming. The big problem is that politics and personalities are often the deciding factors in who is ejected from the equity or the partnership rather than contribution and importance to the business. I have no idea whether Nabarros got this bit right. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
