Jenkens & Gilchrist, Not So Fired Up Anymore (Must See TV)

I hadn’t really thought it worth bothering to mention the recent demise of Dallas firm Jenkens & Gilchrist until I saw this on Google video.

The Wall Street Journal Law Blog chronicled the rise and fall of Jenkens & Gilchrist in which a Chicago partner’s aggressive tax advice eventually lead to of lawsuits by clients and federal investigations in which Jenkens paid a $76 million IRS penalty and agreed to close its doors.

I’d say that video alone was enough to deserve some kind of sanction.

    An attorney friend of mine sent this to me my first week of law school with the note, “Recognize anyone you know?”

    A guy I dated for awhile is in the video.

    How embarrassing is that?

    Also, I didn’t realize that you weren’t linked on my page. I linked you a long time ago, but something must have gone awry somwhere. Sorry about that.

    hi annoyed by juvenile bloggers, thanks for your comment. Since the Jenkins website announced the firm was no longer practicing, I didn’t know who if anyone was still up there but your IP address is still associated with Jenkins & Gilchrist BRW-10742-JENKINS (NET-216-141-187-160-1). Good to know someone is holding down the fort. Thanks for stopping by.
