  • "The combined entity will have a turnover of £5m ..."
    Wow, hold the front page! The D&W / BDB firm would have had a £90m turnover so was marginally interesting and at least we'd heard of them, but this? Must be a desperately slow news day in Poland Street.
    "Hooper & Wollen last month signed up to the QualitySolicitors scheme and has installed a legal information point in the Torquay branch of WHSmith."
    Obviously going for the major corporate market then!
    Signing up to QS or any other sad brand is a sign of desperation. Any firm that needs to include the word `Quality' in its name is implying that unless it tells you it's a quality operation you wouldn't otherwise know!

  • Agreed: the most absurdly over-blown headline in quite some time...

  • I know both these firms well and they are both high street. The idea their merger creates a regional powerhouse is laughable, especially when you look at the performance of Michelmores, Foot Anstey and the like

  • I agree that the use of the word "Powerhouse" is OTT. I know both of these firms well and even in South Devon they are not going to compete in the commercial arena with two of the other, larger firms in the area.
    However, they aren't in the same tier as Michelmores, Foot Anstey or other regional practices. They know it and the rest of us know it so there's no comparison.
    There is life and law outside of the City and hats off to both firms for having a crack at trying to survive what is set to be a ruthless and rapidly changing market.
    Let's keep the nastiness for the vacuous kids who think they've already "made it" on TFIFriday.com
