  • Well, Anonymous at 4:53 a.m., if you know anything about the professional reputations of the gentlemen who appear to have posted, then you will understand that they are highly sought after attorneys and the notion that they were forced out is silly.

  • Very telling that the "colleague" who insinuates that we didn't leave voluntarily doesn't have the guts to put his/her name to it. And that is my gripe about this article: it insinuates that every partner who left was "shed" to make the firm stronger. Let's all reconvene after the 2010 PPP gets released...

  • I didn't insinuate anything; I believe you. I merely expressed my amusement at how eager you appear to be to let readers of a website know you left voluntarily. I would have assumed those who need to know, like clients, would have been told in some more direct way. The rest is vanity.

  • well, 0:18, when your former colleague and managing partner/CEO takes to trashing you in the legal press, is it any wonder that people would like to correct the record? Not sure why you are calling this "vanity", I can only assume you are a poor sap who is stuck at Howrey with nowhere to go. Have fun when the padlock the doors.

    I WISH Russ and others would give a full on interview to The Lawyer or some other publication and give Ruyak the drubbing he deserves in the press.

  • I have an idea. Bring in a bunch a new associates and don't have them bill out to clients. We know there is no work for them, but its all part of the "master plan". Just wait. In a few years all the firms will all be following this model.
    About the only chance the firm has for survial now is to go into the commercial real estate leasing business. God knows they have enough space to lease out. Does anybody know who is working in their New York office these days? They still have an entire floor of the Citi Bank building. High profile departures in SF and LA will make those offices equally vacant.
