No, it's not just griping: Bruce Wagman's clients really are a bunch of apes. Wagman, whose entire practice is devoted to animal law, has lately developed an even narrower focus in chimpanzee and ape protection. "As bizarre as it is to think I was already doing something that was such a niche, now I've got a subspecialty in chimps," says the Schiff Hardin lawyer. Most recently, Wagman has helped 11 apes that were the subject of a high-profile, 18-month legal battle between animal sanctuaries.
