Can someone please post the "Fenwick chairman: 'the worst is already over'" from the Recorder?

An article in SF Business Times talks about advertising campaigns at Farella, Pillsbury and Orrick touting individual lawyers. Shocking! What won't they think of next?

Janitor strike

Question,
Did the janitors vote to strike yet? Will I be taking my own garbage out?

Yes, they voted to strike, but it doesn't affect all companies and buildings. The strike begins tonight. Your building management or janitorial service company will probably let you know whether you're affected.

Sons of bitches. It's bad enough that they never ever dust, and now I'm sure there'll be stinking piles of garbage everywhere.

Do you mean to tell us that your firm doesn't have vermicomposting facilities? For shame.

Patent Malpractice

For any of you that don't get the Daily Journal - the headline yesterday is a preliminary judgement of $30M against Fish & Richardson (and attorney John Land) for missing a PCT filing deadline. The firm failed to timely file an international application, then argued that even though it was their mistake, the application wouldn't have been worth anything, anyway.

Ouch. I wonder if all our malpractice rates will go up?

Ouch indeed.

The amateur futurist inside me is whispering that the stakes of various individual transactions have gotten so high that corporate attorneys and insurers will soon be looking to the legislatures for relief from malpractice burdens. Think "cap," a la med-mal. Congress won't give it, but state legislatures, which are about 80% lawyers anyway, will be sympathetic. Since potential tort claimants make a horrible lobby, and the trial lawyer lobby has been lukewarm to the idea of suing lawyers anyway, the idea will pass in a majority of states.

This will happen in a five-year window. Mark my inner futurist's words.

Other famous words from Atticus Grinch's inner futurist:

5/7/84: "Dudes! As soon as I get out of school, I'm starting a band and becoming a rock star."

3/14/92: "Dude, like Hootie kicks ass! These guys will be around forever!"

6/30/93: "They like totally tested Property on last year's bar, no way they put on this year's test. I'm totally skipping it."

3/2/2000: "Dude, if they like totally don't match the RMSC*, I am so out of here. Shit, Brobeck is hiring like mad dude."


:poke:

I don't know why, but when I think of AG talking, it comes out like totally like that dude.


*Revised Model Salary Code of 2000, sigh

I don't get the paper version, and have been unable to find it online. Could somebody possibly post a link and/or the full text of the article?
