The Recorder's blog recently ran a bit about Howrey's internal voting on the "merger" and what bits and pieces are likely to go to Winston. Supposedly, the Winston partners voted on the merger over the weekend. Maybe.
What I find SHOCKING is that an anonymous former Howrey lawyer believes that the Howrey name and its associated goodwill are worth $20 MILLION dollars. Goodwill? Really?
You know, it's been a long time since clients simply hired firms to handle their problems. Clients hire individual attorneys to hire their problems and follow those same attorneys when they move to another firm. I don't think too many clients are "firm loyal" these days.
The post also mentions that Ruyak is trying to peddle CapAnalysis for $6M.
