Some Updates

Some pretty well confirmed information which has been relayed among many Hellerites tonite:

  • the next shareholder meeting of any type is this Sunday, September 21 and not on Tuesday;
  • a possible configuration of the San Francisco, New York and London offices remaining as Heller Ehrman and the rest of the offices (Anchorage, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, San Diego, Madison, Washington, DC, Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore) left to do their own thing – whatever that means.
One office has already scheduled a 10:00 am office-wide meeting on Monday, September 22 to make some sort of announcement.
Stay tuned of course.

    Heller was and is a fine firm with decent people. I wish them a speedy and successful recovery.

    “If you are not familiar with DTE . . .” WTF? If you are an attorney, any attorney, and you are not familiar with the system to enter your billable hours, you have more problems than you realise.

    I think it’s ’cause they really wanted it entered over the weekend, and many many shareholders have their secretaries enter their time, and have no idea how DTE works.

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
