"Reap What You Sow," not "Eat What You Kill"

Eatwhatyoukill No one who has ever practiced or observed law in a small town is likely to credit Milton Regan’s thesis that "deep, pervasive conflicts of interest" are somehow especially prevalent in modern large-scale corporate practice.  But his new book Eat What You Kill is certainly of interest as a cautionary tale of how a seemingly intelligent lawyer can be so driven by success that he winds up losing everything and going to prison.

It’s also a useful lesson (which can't be repeated too often) about how something that appears to be a trivial and technical violation can—after the thing blows up and someone is howling for blood—become an indictable offense.
