Nice Try Holland & Knight Partner!

Here is another reason why you should keep a close watch on your (big) law firm's billing practices:  lawyers cheat!  If you don't believe me, check out this story:

Today's WSJ carries a story about bill padding at the Chicago office of law firm Holland & Knight.  Apparently the junior partner in charge of a trial blew the whistle on the senior billing partner, who was inflating the bills.

Actually, if the client had followed my tips in this earlier post, I think he or she would have spotted the fraud without the junior partner's help.
