“This is BS. I work at a “top US shop” and occasionally deal with CMS (including their pre-merger components). I can’t speak for every lawyer there, but in my experience they are good at what they do and in many cases they have some excellent lawyers. Whatever your particular grievance, it smacks of immaturity to leave comments such as this on a website.” [Legal Cheek Comments]
