The Intrepid One Talks (Dirty) Merger

There must be something in the water.

First the Dude has three posts this year, each charged with sex: our favorite Israelis, a deposition penis, and he manages to sex up (sort of) a law firm merger.

Not to be outdone, the Intrepid One gets into the act, spicing up her reporting on the possible merger of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney and Fowler White Boggs.

Don't believe me?

"Tampa-based Fowler White Boggs is "deep into" merger talks with Pittsburgh-based Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, according to numerous sources "inside and outside" the firm."

Oh come on. If that is not laced with innuendo, then I don't know what is.

How about this? "Sources say Buchanan Ingersoll and Fowler White "began talking" last summer..."

And this? "Partners at the firms have not voted on the proposal and "a thorough vetting process" is under way,...." Indeed.

As if that weren't enough, "[t]he combined firm would create a 550-lawyer firm "dominated" by Buchanan Ingersoll." That word always makes me want to "appear" before Judge Ungaro.

If the merger consummates, I suggest the name be Buchanan Fowler White Boggs Ingersoll Rooney, or "BFWBingR." The pr flaks should agree that has a certain ring to it, right? Plus, all the kids will think it sounds super cool.

N.B. I absolutely love the look on Dudley Moore's face at 0:57 when Bo answers his question. Happy New Year, SFL. You are indeed The Man.

  4. Great post, GB! Setting high standards for yourself. Keep it up!

  5. Even the comments are laden with innuendo !

  6. You need to make a point of catching her shoes side bar

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
