I'm not sure if it's the mail system or what, but I just received the November 2006 edition (Volume 62, Number 1) of The Business Lawyer. The issue leads off with two very interesting pieces. The first is an essay by co-authored by Norman Veasey (left ), the former chief justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, and now a partner at Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and a Weil associate, Christine Di Guglielmo, entitled "The Tensions, Stresses, and Professional Responsibilities of the Lawyer for the Corporation."
The second is by James C. Freund (right), entitled "Calling All Deal Lawyers - Try Your Hand at Resolving Disputes." I've met Jim Freund - he's now retired from Skadden, Arps: both in person and in writing he is one of the most engaging and charismatic people you would ever want to meet. His "Anatomy of a Merger" may be the best practical "how-to" book on being a lawyer I have ever read.
