With humor in the tradition of Robert Benchley and S. J. Perelman, this book reveals the absurdities of life in a law firm. Through memos, speeches, and committee meetings, the mythically inept firm of Fairweather, Winters & Sommers is described. In "Advanced Law Firm Mismanagement," the firm's founder, Stanley Fairweather, recalls the good--and not-so-good--old days and looks ahead with a bit of trepidation at where the profession is going. In "The Ins & Outs of Law Firm Mismanagement," lawyers are seen through the eyes of the firm's non-lawyers--secretaries, paralegals, the computer tech--who know anyone else how ridiculous lawyers can be. In "Was That a Tax Lawyer Who Just Flew Over?" the lawyers are described from the perspectives of their clients and other outsiders.
Kanter allows lawyers to see ourselves through the eyes of one of our ownwho possesses veneer-penetrating vision, tempered with wit and humor. " Legal Times""
