It’s the middle of August. While taking most of the month off from work may not be as common in the US as in parts of Europe, this is certainly a peak period for people taking some down time. The Olympics are over. The US political season is preparing to kick into high gear, but we’re still nearly two weeks from the first of the nominating conventions. In other words, it’s a time to kick back and relax, and not think too hard. So, I’ll just make a couple of observations about changing (but inconsistent) buyer behavior in the corporate law department, and perhaps put a place marker down for a future conversation.
