  • Interesting to read the other comments. I know others will disagree but personally I wouldn't pay to join the equity partnerships of either Watson Burton or Dickinson Dees at this time. I think both firms have quite a lot of restructuring to do before they become really competitive again.

    Who do people think is the best merger target in Newcastle?

  • Has anyone heard a peep from DWF Newcastle?
    Just what is the new Senior Partner doing if not (a) recruiting or (b) going out into the market to secure work?

  • I had big hopes for DWF freshening up the Newcastle legal market.

    It hasn't happened. Maybe they need to get a few young ambitious partners into the organisation?
