Good luck to everyone leaving the firm. Having been made redundant from Shoosmiths in 2010 I can confidently say that there are lots of new opportunities awaiting you. Reply Link Philip Adams 25 July 2012 at 10:15 Shoosmiths have been a dominant player in the bulk PI market for years. They have reinvested profits in slick case management systems and have adapted as the industry has been squeezed to ensure that the work has been profitable, even if it meant a ‘stack ’em high’ approach to retain profitability. The fact that a firm so rooted in bulk PI cannot foresee any profitability once the costs changes are implimented is a damning indication of how finely balanced profitability will be in this area.

Fact is, it is at the bottom of the mid market and suscepitble to price competition from better mid market firms. Reply Link Anonymous 26 July 2012 at 10:39 Lower market squeeze.

I recently put together a short blog about redundant lawyers using the redundancy experience to improve their life-styles. http://redundant-lawyer.blogspot.co.uk/ (Hope its OK to provide the link – apologies to moderator if I should not have done so and quite understand if you remove this post.)
