Nice Touches

If you ever find yourself orchestrating a big law firm merger: (1) Do have all hands meetings with the two firms' charismatic managing partners (note to self: remind Kurt when it's time for new head shots that the over-the-shoulder jacket look might present -- how to put this delicately -- an undue hazard to the lactose intolerant), and include film clips like Bill Murray's exuberant "We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!" and John Belushi's uncompromising "LET'S DO IT!" (2) Do emphasize the importance of things like mutual respect and integrity. (3) Do endow a new Boalt Hall scholarship that will give a full ride to disadvantaged students in the name of Crosby luminary and longtime trial ad instructor Ed Heafey. These are just isolated examples of the many things being done right here. Bet you're not surprised I'm tickled to see it.
