Reply Link Anonymous 6 June 2012 at 08:48 Excellent performance by DWF. I work in Newcastle and the legal market has been turned on its head by the arrival of DWF. Whilst we had a couple of reasonably good firms, they had become complacent and slightly arrogant. This year they’ve had to improve to keep their heads above water.

Come on chop chop, seems like nobody has hired a soul in Newcastle for about five years. Get your *rses in gear.

Many of the firms had a complacent attitude and never envisaged rivals from Manchester / Leeds taking their clients. They also had a culture of treating everyone other than partners as expendible. I think the market will open once one or two firms have closed. The rumour mill is rife that one firm is in danger, although people have been saying that for three years.
