I have a deposition in two hours and a budget and litigation report to finish before it. But here I am on GLP. Ask me a question.

If I bug bomb the rats in the attic and they end up being a homeless family instead, how much are you going to cost me to troll on GLP instead of dealing with my case?

What's the best way to get your company chosen for the IP trial team doing the demonstratives? Contact the partner? Send him the sides /animations from previous cases (when authorization from client has been given), bribe the associates with cash, food etc.? Assuming our team has major IP trial experience, a first class portfolio and are looking to expand the customer base into new firms.

There are a lot of firms and conflicts that take you out of the game for a large amount of work in said firm, thus I would like to know how best to break into other firms (and different types of matters) to reduce the chance of being conflicted out by serving the same clients all the time.

Any ideas or suggestions would be graciously accepted and appreciated.

I'm not a patent attorney and I don't do IP litigation. It sounds like you have some good ideas. Building relationships with key people is, obviously, the thing to do.

There are many lawyers that I deal with who I dislike. If you see lawyers hating on each other, it's not because it's part of the show. It's because the hate is so strong that they were unable to keep it in.

Thanks again for the input, I had considered to seek out the senior partners on the case and send them a free ipad with the demo reel, case captions and references. The only reason I have hesitated was I needed to be sure it actually got to the partner. I'm sure that the material's quality and our experience would stand on its own, its just the problem of breaking into the partner's workload long enough to get the message across. Using an iBribe, I had hoped it would cause the material to at least be looked at. In general, what would be the most effective way to get the device into the partner's hands? Fed Ex a box in the blind is a big risk.. The folks I have worked with are biglaw patent attys who don't even have time for their wives and have more money and toys then a Saudi prince.. Trying to reach the associates, who are just as busy but a bit more approachable could be a more effective delivery but I am unsure of the level of influence they would have over the partner even if I could win their confidence. What is the primary method that vendors use to reach into your world?

Thanks again!

My criminal defense cousin is too scared to send collection notices or send clients into collect. He fears they will in turn complain to the state bar about unfair billing or fees or what have you.

Any way around all this besides simply not going after money owed? Should he set up his own collections operation too like I suggested?

I guess someone already complained to the bar because they didn't want to pay the rest of the agreed money, so my cousin still has to appear for them but if they haven't paid, it puts him in an awkward position.

How do I hire a HOTTIE female attorney? Those grey suited B-O-R-I-N-G males attorneys are just all boring and business like. I at least want some eye candy to look at when I am forking over $250/hr for routine legal work. In fact if some eye candy was thrown in I would probably pay a 20% premium (it's the company's money after all ... not mine). (specialized stuff ... well I'll deal with "boring", but lets face it 90% of what we send out is just routine stuff)
