I feel for you. I do. Having survived (so far) my own devastating, horrifically public law firm dissolution, I can sympathize. No, it was not on the scale of a firm like Howrey (which has not dissolved, but seems to be headed that way), but I think it might have been nastier. And I practice in a fishbowl. The folks at Howrey (and Thelen and Thatcher) get a little more anonymity.
So, anyway, to those of you young partners and associates who find yourself scrambling at this point, I send you my best wishes for a smooth and pain-minimized landing.
As for me? I haven’t said much and don’t intend to. I will say this, that I am doing pretty well and that I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. And I offer you this, my mantra of the past year and a half, the words of a wise, wise man.
