  1. Was the previous title holder this firm with 6 names? Carroll, Kelly, Trotter, Franzen, McKenna & Peabody

  2. What happened to Glen Meier's name? Did he not make the jump? Seems strange that Fine and Wray make the name, but Meier gets left off. After all, it was Meier & Fine before it was Meier Fine & Wray.

    1. Maybe the partners thought 8 names on the firm name was excessive and Glen drew the short straw.

    2. ..either that, or maybe they wouldn't let Glen put his name on because he is a dick. Just sayin'

  3. And the front page news on that firm's site is that it just hired its third woman. Way to be progressive.

  5. That firm changes names more often than I can track. Every pleading seems to have a name added or subtracted. What's their deal? What happened to Cotton?

    1. They should just go with "Sterling Cooper & Partners"

    2. Cotton probably didn't make the money he thought he deserved, and the former Cotton Walsh probably didn't think he was worth the money Cotton demanded. It was a stupid partnership since Cotton wasn't going to bring them anymore business other than what he had to feed his own people.

    3. Sounds like they've been going through an identity crisis since the loss of Santoro. Hope they find their way. They have a good bankruptcy department.

  6. Do the receptionists answers the phone "Holley, Driggs, Walch, Fine, Wray, Puzey and Thompson", or can they merely answer the phone "Law Offices"?

    Does anyone know? I could find out by merely dialing up the office, but I would feel guilty to make a phoney call if the receptionist really is required to recite all those names.

  7. I did not realize how much I need to know the answer to this question until you asked it.
