June marked the very welcome return of that most deliciously venal product of Charon QC's fertile mind, Matt Muttley, managing partner of Muttley Dastardly LLP.
My only problem in deciding my June Post of the Month was: which Muttley Dastardly LLP post to choose? I could have gone for Muttley Dastardly LLP: Done with your wife or your husband?, with its relevant family law theme, but in the end I decided that my favourite was Muttley Dastardly LLP: This game’s in the refrigerator! The door’s closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard and the Jell-O is jiggling … (the title is a 'Chick-ism', and if you're not quite sure what the hell Matt Muttley is on about, look here).
The post is a chilling account of a meeting between partners and associates, vividly demonstrating the kind of thinking that is required to ensure that a top law firm retains its position in these troubled and difficult times. Compulsory reading for all those firms out there struggling to cope with the recession and the challenge from 'Tesco law'.
