WAR/LAW: American Lawyer Killed In Bali; CCRW Memo

An American-born lawyer - a former Nebraska football player working in Hong Kong for the international firm of Clifford Chance (formerly Clifford Chance Rogers & Wells) - is among those confirmed dead in the bombing in Bali. He was reportedly planning to leave the globe-trotting law business for a job back home with his family in Kansas.

Turning to something completely different, but also on the subject of Clifford Chance . . . well, as a big-firm associate at one of the firm's sometime competitors, I'll just pass on without further comment the link to this New York Law Journal story as a sample of the blizzard of bad press coming from the leaking of this internal memo by associates unhappy with the firm's billable hour targets and a host of other issues.
