  • Is this Trouble at Mill - Addleshaws in the past were excellent ( Mark & Paul particularly) at getting it right first time and avoiding adverse publicity.
    Not sure if the reality is some of the new partners with limited experience of the culture are trying to flex muscle and feel they are carrying the old guard.
    It would appear the judgement call was simply wrong.
    Only time will tell.

  • It is the same old story, If you expect partners to retain their enthusiasm for their vocation and ability to inspire and lead those they work with you cannot mess the partners about and make their personal earnings and finances uncertain.
    The final quote is just management waffle. Clients must wet themselves with laughter reading such tosh. It is the sort of management speak that should, along with "management tools" like '360 appraisals' and 'unbalanced scorecards', be banished from the workplace back to the Business School lecture theatre/playground.
    Partners are otherwise destined to become an type of new awkardly remunerated hourly paid workers, taken to its logical conclusion . Is that a step back or forwards?

  • Fancy management talk for "Piece work" if you ask me. Nothing wrong with a bit of ard graft!

  • to anonymous. all of the "management tools" to which you refer are frequently found (and often used with positive effect) in the wider business world. these tools have been used for a good time in the corporate sector but are only now becoming prevalent in law firms. is the suggestion that such tools should be “banished” as the legal sector has nothing to learn from the wider business community? It also seems pretty poor form to knock addleshaws for using the same language that many of their clients will be familiar with and use themselves. Law is a business after all. Run it like a business. If lawyers can’t understand the same kind of language and concepts that their own commercial clients use, poor clients!!
