Michael Trotter and Author of New Book, "Declining Prospects," Quoted in New York Times DealBook
In the New York Times DealBook Q&A, Trotter is interviewed and asked about his thoughts on the Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP crisis. Trotter is asked how the publication of his book “Declining Prospects” comes at a moment when Dewey faces the risk of collapse and that the turmoil at the firm appears to be a manifestation of a lot of the issues that Trotter discusses in his book. His response: "I don’t think Dewey’s problems are just a matter of a management mistake here or there but instead reflect a change in the fundamental competitive environment in the legal services industry. Many of the larger firms that serve major business clients are caught up in these changes." Click here to read the Q/A online.
