Dibbs debt merger costs support jobs

DIBB Lupton Broomhead is merging its Bromley and Bradford debt collection offices to improve efficiency.

The move will involve the closure of the Bromley office at the end of September.

A few Bromley support staff will be offered jobs in Bradford and London, but the rest face redundancy. No solicitors will lose their jobs.

Debt collection partner Tim Pope says the move is the result of “an extensive internal review”. He adds: “It will cut costs. The redundancies include paralegals and secretarial staff.”
