Jenner is the latest de-equitizer...

Read it and weep.

It is happening all over at BigLaw, so I guess it is not unexpected, but I guess I am a little sad about the news. When I was younger, I always thought of Jenner and litigation like I did Arthur Andersen (pre-Enron) and auditing: the gold standard.

But then, for many law is not so much a learned profession anymore as it a business, and I for one lament it. I guess that is why I write this blog: as a reminder that thinking thoughts and musing about the world is okay, even if it affects your bottom line of profits. I'd rather bill fewer hours and enjoy my career and my life. But that's me.
