Alanis Would Surely Appreciate This! (To set the stage, I am a legal secretary. Part of my job is opening my boss’s mail.) So in today’s mail, first we have her copy of The Texas Lawyer. There’s an article on the front page about the law firm of Gardere & Wynne and their troubles with the SEC and how they’ve settled for $1.2 million. Still can’t wipe their hands totally clean, though. Okay, then I paw through the rest of the mail. What’s this? A beautiful, full-color announcement brochure from Gardere & Wynne. And they spent some bucks on this baby! (See the scan.) What are they announcing? The establishment of their new White Collar Criminal Defense Practice! I was laughing so hard I almost peed myself! My boss came out of her office and when I pointed it out to her she cracked up. Thanks, G&W, I needed that!
