  • The death knell. However I know some people who were transferred as trainees from Anderson Legal, and in the long run this was the best thing that could have happened to them.

    If this could happen to a global giant, why couldn't it happen to a Shoosmiths or Dickinson Dees?

  • I was a trainee at a small high street firm that closed part way through my Training Contract.
    I was amazed to find that there was no help whatosever from the Law Society for people in my situation. I was, in effect, back in the huge pool of LPC graduates looking for a training contract.
    I was lucky to find another firm to take me on, and I am now qualified.
    My point is, this could happen to any trainee at any time. There but for the grace of God go any of us!
    Given the current economic climate, perhaps time for The Law Society to think about what happens to trainees when firms go under.

  • What a nightmare. Let us hope that the Law Society does better than with Halliwells. Have they even made any statement? A search for "dewey" on their website does not provide any recent hits: www.lawsociety.org.uk/search?query=dewey&searchname=search1

    On a related point, can you stop using the phrase "face an uncertain future"? Unfortunately, the future of the trainees with Dewey is all too clear - there is none.
