Updated: Dewey and LeBoeuf Law Firm Troubles



Are there any lawyers that can explain what is going on the Wall Street Law firm Dewey and LeBouf? Dewey and LeBoeuf is a finance and energy law practice and it has lost 70 partners and there are rumors of an impending bankruptcy.

Here's some URLs I was sent, one interesting tangent on this is one of the partners had a Russian spy girlfriend, Anna Chapman. Imagine seeing your girlfriend taken away by the FBI?

I still haven't figured out why they issued an unusual bond offering in 2010, seems like they had to come up with cash in a hurry and didn't want to go to banks for it.

This is a low priority project, but still its curious.

No comment on the post, but just had to say the shades definitely rock on your caricature. Looks as though the gravatar needs updating. Keep up the good work...
