Overview

America's expert on law firm mismanagement is back with a whole new array of humorous committee meetings, memos, speeches, and consultants' reports that present lawyers acting not like sharks, but rather floundering in a sea of dilemmas. The lawyers at the fictitious firm Fairweather, Winters & Sommers consider the advantages of merging and going virtual, bicker over a firm web site, and in front of a morning talk-show audience, try to understand economics, and scramble to figure out what to do when a big corporate client gets caught being unusually unethical. A sports-mogul client argues for drafting law-school graduates as if they were athletes, and a look into the future finds lawyers trolling outer space for new business. As ever, the firm's founder, Stanley Fairweather, gets the last, wise word. Imagination and humor drive this law firm s<%END%>-up, which turns a dull topic into hilarious farce and entertains lawyers while showing them the error of their ways.

“Just about every law firm should have copies of these books.” —Law Office Economics & Management

“Arnold Kanter . . . allows lawyers to see ourselves through the eyes of one of our own—who possesses veneer-penetrating vision, tempered with wit and humor.” —Legal Times
