In Coke We Trust

Apparently Ben Garren, general counsel for North America at Coca-Cola, leads a cult. Their outside counsel "should be focused on helping to sell its products." Jeffrey Cashdan, a partner at King & Spalding and cultist who represents Coca-Cola, said "he has banned competitors' drinks from his home." So apparently being a truly good lawyer doesn't necessarily rely on your skills, but on what you eat, drink, drive and dress in. Personally, I have always appreciated the fact that the firms I worked for wanted the best products and services, the ones that made the most business sense, not just ones sold by their clients. Regardless, it gives new meaning to the phrase, "drinking the Kool-Aid." Read more at Bloomberg BNA: At Coca-Cola, GC Wants 'Cult' Devotion from Outside Counsel

Not all The Same

The LexisNexis CounselLink team have a new survey out, "Property & Casualty Claims and Litigation AFA Usage Survey." Narrow in scope, it might not appeal to everyone, but the numbers are very interesting. Flat fees, blended rates, fixed fees, multi-stage, capped fees, flat fee by portfolio types, performance bonus and holdbacks all made significant inroads under the categories, "very effective/effective." The biggest impediments to using AFAs were "Case Complexity/Unique Cases/Ability to Handle Change Over Time," "Fear of Poor Defense" and "Creating a Win-Win / Being Fair to Firms."
