CB Interviewer same as Screener

Curious if anyone has dealt with this situation. Since I have already done 30 min with my interviewer, I am not sure why the second interview with the same person. How common is this? Any particular reason a firm would set a CB up like this?

Often the screener greets you and maybe walks you around. That is probably what this is.

Had one like this; screener was first person to meet (although for shorter amount of time than the rest of interviewers). Basically greeted me and told me what to expect for the rest of the day, and offered to answer any questions I might have had--e.g., about the interviews, about what the attorneys are looking for in a candidate, whatever. Probably done so more to put you at ease before the "real" interviews begin. Not sure whether your screener is the first person that you're meeting (since that info wasn't in the OP) but I think that's the usual situation.
