Another law firm enters administration Davenport Lyons
Davenport Lyons LLP entered administration on 25th April. It is the latest of a number of high profile solicitor firm insolvencies of major firms. The firm's business was acquired by Gordon Dadds solicitors. Local firms were not immune, including the closure on different grounds of Blakemores & Geoffrey Parker Bourne, and the voluntary arrangement of Alsters Kelley LLP. Solicitors' firms are clearly not the solid covenant that they once were.
