Mystery Manhattan 'Law Firm' Listed on Website Appears to Be a Fake ... But Why?

Observers have noticed that a new Manhattan law firm appears to be simply a fictitious website.

But what really has them scratching their heads is why, reports the Am Law Daily.

If “Cromwell & Goodwin” was trying to scam anyone, surely it would be accessible via phone, for example, says partner David Keyko of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. He formerly chaired the professional responsibility committee at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.

Keyko speculated that the website might relate to some kind of government sting operation.
