UK firm Weightmans to acquire parts of Vizards Wyeth

January 10, 2011 Vizards Wyeth is set to be acquired by national UK law firm Weightmans, according to reports.

Employees at the 19-partner firm have been informed that only some parts of the business are likely to be retained, and a number of jobs are at risk. RollOnFriday quotes an anonymous source as saying that many staff "see this as the equity partners finding a quick way of getting out of the problems they have caused at the cost of their employees' jobs. Not the best Christmas present."
