Having written post after post on total legal spending by companies and having tried to cover all the permutations of what can go into such figures, I began to wonder about total legal spending and the revenue of companies. Wondering some more, I formulated a number of reasons why that spend drops as revenue rises (See my post of Dec. 3, 2007 for early thoughts.).
My article on that topic appeared in Legal Times, Jan. 28, 2008 (go to the bottom for the PDF version). I welcome reader’s thoughts on the reasons.
