The Law Firm Holiday Party, Texas Style

Check out this article in the ABA Journal.  Apparently the going rate for law firm holiday parties is $100k in Houston, Texas.  The defense firms' clients aren't happy, believing that $100k for party favors like, oh, I don't know, acrobats is a $100k in attorney fees they didn't need to pay.  The plaintiff's firms' "clients" (i.e., the lawyers who refer them cases) don't seem upset by extravagant spending on parties.  For more on that angle, read this article.--Counseller
