Hill DIckinson likely to make redundancies in the UK

May 1, 2013 Hill Dickinson looks set to make redundancies, having launched a review of its UK business. The move comes after the firm posted flat revenues for the 2012-13 financial year.

At the conclusion of the review, at the end of July, the firm is expected to cut jobs for support staff and fee earners. It isn’t yet clear whether the firm will also reduce the size of the partnership or close offices.

Senior partner David Wareing said: “It is vital that through this review we also ensure appropriate profit levels are maintained, to facilitate our ability to further invest in the business for the future.

“In the recent past we have been involved in acquisitions which have secured jobs particularly in Liverpool and Sheffield and security of employment will remain a priority wherever possible. Redeployment of staff in order to properly reflect client needs will be fully explored. The outcome of any review will ensure we maintain our status as a market leading provider of legal services."
