  • You get what you pay for I guess

    I mean if I was a client such as RIM I think I would much prefer a £5m bill and victory in all the issues, than a £1m bill and having lost all of the issues.
    Of course remembering that 66% of RIM's costs will be paid by Visto meaning that the loser's bill is in reality a lot more than £1m - does that imply that he would have been okay if the A&O associates/staff had done 6 years of work in a 15 month period.
    Well done Taylor Wessing though. You've managed to lose the case outrightly yet make it seem like you've done your client a favour - if there's a lesson in any of this it's probably that.
