You would think law firm management would have learned by now to stop writing stupid and overbearing memos. They all end up on the Internet; hell, Above the Law is making a cottage industry out of posting moronic memoranda for public ridicule.
Which brings us to Morrison & Foerster.
ATL has a memo from New York Managing Partner Charles Kerr, berating the children (to judge from the tone) for not showing up on time, preferably for 8 a.m. jumping jacks in the lobby. Big Law is already famous for consuming as much of a lawyer's life as it can, with no respect for evenings and weekends (and, yes, pretty good money in exchange). These days, terror of layoffs is everywhere, and few firms have enough work to go around. Great time to make sure everyone's in early to rearrange their Post-It notes by size and shape.
Interestingly, if you google "Charles Kerr" and "mofo," already the memo post is the top hit. Just google his name and you get "The Ultimate Temple of Charles Kerr Hatred," but we were disappointed to discover it's apparently some other Chuck Kerr in New York. Though someone in Mofo's IT department may be developing a competing side project as we speak.
