    Thank God property lawyers seemed to have avoided the chop so far. Good to see the real estate poseurs getting a reality (or redundancy) check - that's how they spell it over the pond isn't it?

    440 is likely to be a gross underestimate of the number of conveyancing fee earners laid off nationally so far .There were 5 at my firm including me and we are not even mentioned.

    what i find is annoying is that this table and others like it fail to reflect what is REALLY going on. the reality is, all firms are cutting back and the like. those nasty firms with high 'natural wastage' (most likely due to being not very nice places to work) do not have to make redundancies, a recruitment moratorium gets them through. nice places to work where retention is normally high (e.g. Wraggs) are forced to make cuts in order to safeguard their business..............finally you get the thrid tiermade up of those who make cuts on the sly..........

  • Looking at these figures, I would estimate that more lawyers have been made redundant. 4 lawyers have been made redundant at my firm in Leeds including myself and the firm has not even been mentioned.
