Mark H. McCormack, Author Beech Tree Paperback Book $17.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-688-06621-5
Lawyers labor inside ""a wall of molasses,'' says McCormack (What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School)referring to the American system of jurisprudenceand, as a result, their clients are often penalized in terms of time and cost. Proffering axiomatic, freewheeling advice, McCormack formulates action plans that will put clients on a more equal footing with their lawyers. How to cut through long-winded legalese and promote the expeditious settlement of contracts, divorces, real estate closings and other fee-bearing legal necessitiesand when not to take the legal routeis the main thrust of this primer for clients. McCormack, graduate of Yale Law School and founder of International Management Group, speaks with authority and conviction, cites cases and aims his arrows at the legal establishment in a good-humored way. Required reading before engaging a lawyer. (September)
