Zagat ratings for law firms – coming to a web site near you soon!

Thanks to Ron Friedman for this pointer: the American Lawyer (July 2005) reports that the General Counsel of FMC, Jeffrey Carr, plans to create a Web site to rate law firms. I think that’s a great idea. We would not want it to become like voting for baseball All-Stars, a matter of anyone logging on and adding ratings. There needs to be some assurance that the raters are disinterested. Ay, there’s the rub.
