Reports how two years ago, Management Decision readers were left in suspense concerning the mystery of two solicitors’ firms facing impending bankruptcy. Explains that the two firms responded to their respective crises by adopting diametrically opposed survival strategies, although both seemed perilously vulnerable to the forces threatening to destroy them; would they survive? Describes their subsequent progress and discusses what can be learned from each firm’s experiences.
