Why Lawyers Need Consultants
The paragraph below was forwarded to me by Josh Richards from the New York Times. The story was about the kibillion dollar Los Angeles Dodgers’ bankruptcy and possible purchase. You’ll see the gesture made by the law firm as one that just couldn’t be made up. I’m appending a virtual Whack-A-Mole for those of you who might need its comforting powers.
The (law) firm has discounted its $1.7 million in billings to $1.37 million, plus $31,682 in expenses. On the lowest rung of costs, the law firm revealed that it is giving the Dodgers a deal. On photocopies. Usually, the firm charges clients 25 cents a page. For the struggling Dodgers? Ten cents apiece for $5,851.20 in copies.
