June 21st Luncheon Program – Bruce MacEwen & Sara Randazzo: Teachable Moments from the Fall of Dewey

NYLMA is pleased to announce the addition of Sara Randazzo of The American Lawyer, to our June 21st event. In the most-watched news story in the legal industry in years, we have all been riveted by the highly visible demise of Dewey & LeBoeuf. Join us as NYLMA welcomes Bruce MacEwen, whose pieces in Adam Smith, Esq. have become required reading for anyone interested in the Dewey debacle. Now joining Bruce will be Sara Randazzo, who has been reporting the story from the very beginning in The American Lawyer. Together, they’ll review the facts of the Dewey story, then share with us their insights into just what went wrong and why. Since the story is still unfolding, we’re not sure what they might be talking about on June 21. But we know they’ll be addressing a number of the following themes:

  • Revenue misrepresentation
  • Guarantees upon guarantees
  • 20-to-1 partnership compensation ratios
  • Haves and have-nots
  • The “You’re Free to Leave” Memo

There are lessons we can all take from the decline and fall of Dewey – no matter what size your firm might be — and you cannot miss this luncheon. Any questions in advance for our speakers? You can submit one HERE.
