Chairman R. Bruce McLean framed the rash of departures as so much collateral damage in an overhaul that has been a qualified success to this point. (McLean did reflect with regret on the plight of 12 labor and employment partners who left when the firm attempted to reshape the practice to focus more on corporate class action and less on single-plaintiff defense, calling the attorneys "extremely talented" and admitting that "we didn't plan on losing all of them.") Nevertheless, he seized on the opportunity to take one last jab at certain unnamed departed while apparently coining a new moniker for partners whose billings don't quite match their egos: "You can't believe everything you read," McLean asserted. "Just because someone says they're a rainmaker, doesn't mean they're making rain. Sometimes it's more like fog."
