Law

Hmm, did they leave anything out?

Why yes, I believe they did. Terry Christensen's law firm sent out a press release today (via Sitrick & Co.) that says he'll be "withdrawing" from the practice of law and the firm that bears his name. No mention of a little thing called federal prison.

LOS ANGELES, Sep 18, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Christensen, Glaser, Fink, Jacobs, Weil & Shapiro, LLP today announced that the law firm name has been changed to Glaser, Weil, Fink, Jacobs & Shapiro, LLP. Terry Christensen, the firm's managing partner since its formation in 1988, said "I am very proud of the law firm we have built in the last 20 years and I am confident that the partners will continue to prosper and build a great firm. I will be withdrawing from the practice of law." Peter Weil and Barry Fink will assume the role of Co-Managing Partners.

Patricia Glaser stated "We are fortunate to have a firm based on talented partners and associates and loyal clients. For these reasons, and others, including Terry's outstanding contributions to the law firm, we are well positioned to continue to move forward as a strong and successful law firm."

Peter Weil, Co-Managing Partner, said: "Despite a difficult economic environment, the firm has continued to thrive. We have recently added 10 new attorneys, we have 100% acceptance rate from our 2008 summer program, we continue to add wonderful new clients and our newly opened Las Vegas office has already been profitable."

Christensen was convicted in August in a trial with ex-private eye Anthony Pellicano over spying on the ex-wife of mogul Kirk Kerkorian.
