  • I know both these firms, and even supply some services to Veale Wasbrough. Both are good firms and I could see the sense in the merger as soon as it was announced. All they need to do now is find a Reading based firm and they're all set to be a new M4 corridor powerhouse.
    Regs....David.
    P.S. I never put much store in "Anonymous" comments on these kind of threads, but have to say the "Italian sister firm did make me laugh out loud.

  • Don't worry they will rebrand themselves my suggestion is "Fleshfields" any others?

  • I can't imagine any serious (i.e. bright, talented and ambitious) lawyer would work in either of these firms: I fail to see how that is arrogant

  • I can't imagine a "serious" lawyer who logs on at 6.42am to post feedback on a minor story in the Lawyer . . . did they reject you for a training contract?

  • there are a lot of uptight posts here defending this firm, I'm sure they are staffed with competent lawyers but the point is who wants to work for a firm that sounds "weasly" this is basic common sense branding.

  • Did you fail English? How does Veale Wasbrough sound remotely "weasly"?

  • Totally agree - some of the posters need a reality check if thei think that the only talent within the legal profession is concentrated exclusively at City firms.

    Incidentally, I'm not a bitter City reject. I trained and practiced at a Top 10 firm and then left of my own volition when I had a child and to fit in with my other half's army posting..

    The conclusion being, that yes, there are plenty of cowboys/half wits at smaller firms but in no way are there any more than are currently walking the hallowed floors of the Magic Circle..get real! Any joker can sit in their office until 11pm every night- it doesn't make you a better professional, or more successful or more , well, anything really...apart from boring obviously..

    Plenty of talented lawyers are secure enough in themselves to have avoided the City in favour of life (the operative word here) at smaller firms...and no they don't look wistfully on as their City counterparts get all the glory, secretly berating themselves for never 'making it'

    Get a grip!

  • I agree - the arrogance of some of the comments above are astounding. As head of an independent school, I can vouch for the quality of services provided by Veale Wasbrough and the client care taken.

  • Interesting that the silliest comments include those who don't have the balls to include their names.
