More firms could do with following a similar path. Reply Link Anonymous 6 February 2013 at 11:16 I wish you every success. It is great to see some of the innovation coming out of some of these regional businesses. They will change the legal landscape whilst the big boys will fall behind and falter.

Reply Link Richard Chaplin 6 February 2013 at 15:26 Would you like to be referred to as a non-person? The constant use of the term ‘non-lawyer’ is offensive, arrrogant and, most importantly, a complete turn-off to those who may be interested in working for a professional firm but chose a career in management. Do law firms need management? Do people need air to breathe? Is it a surprise that ABS management teams are paid more than their service providers? Or that when selecting advisers, the majority of clients tell FT and MPF that the impression of being a well-managed advisory firm is an essential pre-condition? Sounds like it’s time for another MPF crusade in praise of unsung heroes and second class citizens.

A man with an ego of Olympic proportions. I always expected him to end up as the MD of First Group or NX, this seems a very strange move.
