  • Is there any manner to get the contact details of Di Carmine, Sanders and Davis? Many thanks.

  • I am appalled. As a former Dewey associate I am so hurt by this news - how can these guys sleep at night?

  • They sleep well because they are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. They had contempt for the partners, and believed it their right to loot the firm.

  • If Al Capone was alive today, he wouldn't bother with bars and gambling dens, he'd just open a law firm.

  • Read a book called "Snakes in Suits". It explains a lot about the behaviour of people who have no sense of shame, remorse, guilt, or empathy. They display all the qualities of the psychopathic personality and often end up in positions of enormous power and/or wealth. Welcome to the City!

  • My expense reports for all of 2011 (which are, I assure you, heavily audited by the firm bookkeeper and the firm office manager, and then approved by the managing partner) total under $10,000. That includes mileage reimbursement, parking, and client entertainment. I receive "bonuses" once per year.

  • A tiny bonus like that is more embarrassing than actually having accepted it in the first place.
    A junior bonus at best.

  • Oh do me a favour. They got a million dollars or whatever it is cos that's what their agreement says they were going to get. I don't know who said it has to be fair. What's fair? Whenever has anything been fair? The people I feel sorry for aren't the middle-class lawyers who can tout themselves around. It's the blokes in GO and the secs. Save your tears for them. I wouldn't cross the road for those guys if they were on fire, but don't waste your life on them - they will end up cleaning the windows at some low-rent US firm, or, even worse, running the place.
