The ReedSmithWatch was launched by consumer advocate Ralph Nader. Its purpose is to compile a comprehensive case study of the corporate law firm Reed Smith LLP, which cuts through the PR and propaganda to get at the truth.
Issues investigated include firm culture, ethics and professional responsibility, clients and billing practices, recruiting and hiring, political activities and more.
Our goal is to expand on research previously documented in books such as No Contest: Corporate Lawyers and the Perversion of Justice in America (Random House 1996), coauthored by Nader and Wesley J. Smith, and The Other Government: The Unseen Power of Washington Lawyers, (Grossman 1975) by Mark J. Green.
By focusing on a single firm in a continuously updated online format, RSW provides daily witness to the impact corporate law firms can have on the legal, professional and political communities in which they operate.
While RSW focuses on Reed Smith, we may post related information about other corporate law firms, provided it is accurate and verifiable.
