Lawyers are changing law firms at an ever-increasing rate. No news there. The reasons are manifold and include personality conflicts, culture, career advancement, boredom or even following a spouse or significant other to another city or state. But face it, we all know that there is one over-arching reason why an attorney changes firms ? money. The increasing commoditization of the legal profession, or at least of the attorneys that comprise the profession, has created an environment in which the attorney?s value ? and, hence, his or her compensation ? is measured by the number of dollars the attorney controls, and has created a market place where attorneys are for sale to the highest bidder.
