When Jeff Brauer left his job serving of counsel to a law firm in China, he spent five months sending e-mails and hired two attorneys to collect $150,000 in unpaid compensation he claims the firm still owed him.
When that didn’t work, he started his own blog. Within weeks, the managing partner of the firm “told me to take the blog down immediately. I realized that, actually, I should do precisely the opposite,” Brauer told The National Law Journal from China, where he has since started his own business consulting firm. “I was in the public eye, and that really made it sort of even more of a problem for them to … do anything to me.”
