Partying With SD's Coughlin Stoia

“Paying Plaintiffs to Sue,” Forbes:

Conferences, at least, bear the patina of educational merit and an opportunity to curry favor with the officials who help pick legal counsel. Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins hired Bill Clinton (who reportedly charges $150,000 and up) to appear at a seaside event at San Diego’s Hotel del Coronado last September.

This forum on “The Future of Corporate Reform” had pension officials enjoying an oceanside clambake, closing day at Del Mar racetrack, a ride on an America’s Cup-winning vessel, balloon rides and a four-course French banquet. Coughlin Stoia’s conference partner: the Corporate Library, a for-profit governance watchdog. Coughlin Stoia insists clients hire it for its winning record. The Corporate Library characterizes the conference as “an intensive, engaging and informative event that combined many hours of speeches, panels and dialogue with opportunities for informal conversation.”
