The article presents some pieces of opinions of the author related to law firms. The author presents the view that it is good to see that the shy and retiring former state industry firms Herbert Smith and Wragges property leader Gerald Bland has not disappeared entirely since his departure from the Birmingham, England giant last year. Via the machinations of a management consultancy "focused on strategy development and implementation" hired to punt his CV to anyone who'll listen, the humble Bland has created a website to trumpet his new business. "Welcome to the website of Gerald Bland," it blathers, "the internationally acclaimed commercial lawyer, dealmaker, adviser and troubleshooter to a select group of blue-chip corporations and private clients."
