CONTROVERSY AND CONSEQUENCES - It looks like Donald Trump’s presidency could be ending the same way it began: kicking up controversy for the law firms that represent him and his interests, and raising broader philosophical questions about the perils of taking on divisive clients and cases. And while Trump wasn’t the first, won’t be the last and is far from the only current client with a spotty public image, he is emblematic of a new kind of reputational risk that could potentially cause more severe problems for law firms than a mere PR headache. In this week’s Trendspotter column (the first of a two-parter before a short Thanksgiving holiday hiatus), we’ll look at the clients that have sparked the most public pushback on firms recently. Next week, we’ll dive into whether the backlash could have real business consequences.
