At this rate there won’t be a Dickinson Dees in a few years. The firm is in crisis and nothing will change until it admits this and takes action.

The turnover is almost 25% less than 3 years ago because they’ve lost their better performing teams, eg the family department quitting in 2010. I think the Leeds base is a very good idea, but it won’t stem the exodus of staff moving from the Newcastle office to DWF.

One wonders how much goodwill the management partnership of Marshall and Blair have left.

It is laudable. In other parts of the country clients would react to tough economic conditions by moving around for better service, lower fees etc However in the north east there’s loyalty to it’s oldest firm (founded 1975). Long may it continue! Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
