It's a bunch of partners who are padded with fat stacks. So it's more like fucking Emmanuelle Chriqui and not being able to get it up to fuck Katy Perry.

Jokes aside, never a good thing to see law firms cleaning house during a good economy.

and the impossible has happened: a big law firm sheds partners and staff, but not associates.

Maybe firms are starting to realize that you can increase PPP by firing partners.

they're targeting the model that makes law firms so badly run: partners who cant generate their own business. and too many firms have business generators who entrench relationships in themselves rather than pass them down, train colleagues to bring in business. in some cases, they even stifle the bringing in of business by other attorneys.

That's such a comeback Lisa Kudrow should make a show about it and star as you.
