However for support staff, with children and chld care committments etc, who barely get by on 100% of salary, and for whom this is not a ‘life choice’ then this may be worse than redudancy. I read all of the posts on this and similar sites and hear all the lawyers ‘bleeding’ (only 1 new car this year!) and cannot help but feel that for certain people the options are easier than for others. Better than losing your job I guess, but really hard for some folks who will find this very difficult to manage. Still, as long as short term PEP is held up … As equity Partners you take the risk, not shaft more poorly paid staff. Never heard of saving?

I doubt anyone will forget: (i) ‘Linklaters New World’, aka P45! and (ii) David Cheyne thinking clients might not actually want lower rates.
