Dewey Need to Take a Pledge?


Dewey & LeBoeuf continues to be daily battered in the media. Too many of the slings and arrows now being shot Dewey’s way are self inflicted.

Those with the most to lose seem to be trying to get this ship of state back on course, but are badly losing their way by their failure to assure that they and an important large block of important players will stay the course, come hell or high water. Instead, a Group of Seven would have us believe that if they stick it out, everything will be swell. But, they haven’t provided adequate assurances that they will in fact stick it out. These law firm leaders are not reading from the same playbook and do not shrink from publicly issuing inconsistent statements about critical issues and tepid endorsements for the firm’s future.

Nobody wants to see a law firm fail. Law firm failures are too often the result of malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance at the summit.

The world is waiting for a strong showing of a united and committed Dewey leadership team. It hasn’t happened yet. We all hope to see this united front before it’s too late.
