Insight: Law Firms Need to Reach Out to Clients to Endure Next Recession: Bloomberg Law, September 11, 2019

Law firms won’t be as severely impacted by the next recession as they were by the financial crisis, says Alex Dimitrief, former GC at General Electric. But, he says, legal departments are more willing to forgo the “safety” of hiring name-brand law firms for the value of mid-tier and regional law firms. Being proactive and working with clients is key.

Corporate Activism: A Case Study of GE’s Stand on Bathroom Bills and Lessons Learned: Directors & Boards, December 2019

A political stand on LGBTQ rights by GE five years ago met with acclaim in many quarters but also led to criticism from some legislators and to a contentious proposal at the company’s annual meeting claiming strategic hypocrisy.

Did You Say Dentons? Greenberg Traurig Has Already Positioned Itself as a 'National Firm'

When Dentons recently announced its bold plan to build “the first national law firm” in the U.S., Greenberg Traurig’s leaders scoffed, pointing out that their firm had already done that. If by “national law firm” Dentons meant achieving geographic scale—which is what it suggested when it noted that none of the nation’s top 10 full-service law firms has offices in all 20 of the largest U.S. markets—then it had a point.
