There's a Good Chance That You May Be Fired

Attention law firm lawyers: Don't assume that because you don't plan on appearing on Donald Trump's TV show, The Apprentice, that you won't hear the words "You're fired!" As Rees Morrison warns in this post, 34 percent of 407 companies participating in an Inside Counsel Survey indicated that they  had fired, or planned to fire, one of their law firms in 2006. Still, even though a large number of companies announced their intent to fire a firm, a firm's chances of being fired really aren't all that significant. Morrison explains that each company hires around 200 law firms, and if they plan on firing just one, there's a less than 1 percent chance that it might be your firm.
