  • I had heard, from a few people that it has been an unspectacular year. Strange these figures suggest otherwise.

  • Sorry, but I think the headline is misleading.
    Since 2008 Dickinson Dees turnover has plummeted by 25%.
    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.

  • Well done to DD's PR team for spinning some dismal figures so they sound almost average.
    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.

  • Olswang improved its performance by 30% in the last 12 months.
    By that measure 1.3% is disappointing. One wonders how much goodwill the management partnership of Marshall and Blair have left.

  • Proof that businesses in the North East are the most loyal in the country.

    Even in a really bad year, Dickinson Dees's bedrock of clients won't stray.

    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!
