I have also noticed MORE firms going down with mans' names. Clearly theres a pattern here:
Paul Hastings, Reed Smith, Allen Matkins, Wolf Block, Edward Angell & Palmer Dodge, Clifford Chance, TroutMAN Sanders, and Weil Gotshal. I think Weil is 'Wes' in yiddish.
And the there is Manatt... Never heard of a Womanatt. Maybe that's because it is NOT firing.
Other blawggers will probably steal my original writing. As far as I can tell I am the ONLY Blawgger reportng this right now.
