Hill Dickinson makes 83 redundancies

July 30, 2013 Liverpool-based law firm Hill Dickinson is making 83 redundancies following a review of practices, including 14 partners and 69 employees.

The firm justified the cuts on the basis of “difficult trading conditions”, but insisted that it remains a “strong and sustainable business”.

Senior partner David Wareing said: “This has been a sensitive time for all involved and we have done our utmost to conduct a professional and thorough consultation process with our staff throughout.

“We have a strong and sustainable business and indeed many of our teams recorded revenue growth in the last financial year.

“Inevitably, however, we have been affected like all our competitors by the difficult trading conditions which presently exist in our regional centres and, accordingly, it has been necessary for us to proactively manage the business to ensure the stability of the firm as a whole and to enable us to continue to further invest in the business in the future.”
