Muttley Dastardly LLP

24 December 2010

Inksters have been sponsoring Charon QC's excellent series on Muttley Dastardly LLP: Perhaps the nemesis of Inksters. The series takes a satirical look at the fictional corporate law firm Muttley Dastardly LLP and the musings of their senior partner, Matt Muttley.

Muttley Dastardly LLP

Episode 10, A Christmas Carol, was published yesterday. Muttley Dastardly LLP will be having a Partners meeting on Christmas Day, although allowing their Partners a generous "four hours on Christmas Day to attend to matters of family". This is perhaps not as outrageous as it may at first appear. Tim Bratton has recently blogged on US lawyers working at Christmas time in 'Why US lawyers don't want their boss's job'. Tim blogs that "three Christmases ago a partner at a US firm rang my mobile on Boxing Day chasing my payment of a bill.  Last Christmas Day I received 2 or 3 emails from a different US firm regarding a transaction we were working on - these were substantive emails attaching revised transaction documents, not two-liners pinged from a Blackberry for the sake of appearing busy". At Inksters, unlike Muttley Dastardly LLP and those US law firms, we will be resting on Christmas Day. This will be all the better for our clients in the New Year as we emerge refreshed and ready to tackle the cases and transactions that 2011 has in store for us.

Do follow Muttley Dastardly LLP for a humorous account of life in a law firm that is quite a bit different from Inksters.
