Anonymous Memo

by Vault Law Editors | August 12, 2009

I missed this last week, but at the WSJ Law Blog,  Jeremy Blachman delivered a fantastic send-up of the mealy-mouthed firmwide memo.  A couple snippets:

We assure you none of these initiatives are related to troubles on our balance sheet. We are simply exploring more flexible work arrangements, including some arrangements where you no longer work here and we no longer pay you. It has nothing to do with any alleged recession, we promise.

....

Finally, our health insurer, after receiving our most recent check for premiums, has asked us to expand our Family Leave program. If you have a family, please leave.

Blachman's (blog-begotten) novel, Anonymous Lawyer, is hilarious, but I think his greatest achievement is the Anonymous Law Firm web site, complete with fake attorney profiles.
