Going to be a lot of firms pissed at that list of survivors. Only Wachtel seems to belong, and it's in a category of its own. Looks like the Bloomberg author took the list from Steve Harper, so no surprise. The underlying article pretty much repeats what everyone already knew: that Howery was badly run. It ignores the global practice topic altogether. The "demise of Biglaw" literature" is beginning to look like Circuit Courts of Appeals decisions on a new issue. The first Court to discuss the issue takes a position and every Court after that just adopts it. So much for the benefits of federalism.
