And he was VERY prestigious…
In case you don’t visit ATL in the evenings (even though we post at all hours), please check out this post from last night: Please Stop Forwarding the Gallion & Spielvogel Link To All Your Friends, While Laughing Your Ass Off.
It concerns the website of Gallion & Spielvogel, a highly esteemed boutique law firm founded by former associates of the extremely well-regarded, exceptionally international law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell. G&S is now representing associate Gera Grinberg — y’know, the guy who allegedly had an “unnatural relationship” with Aaron Charney — in connection with Charney v. Sullivan & Cromwell.
As one of you suggested, we reached out to Edward Gallion and Steve Spielvogel. We inquired into the death of their delightful website.
Check out our correspondence to them, after the jump.
Here’s what we wrote:
Dear Messrs. Gallion & Spielvogel:
What happened to your website? After I mentioned your firm yesterday, a number of readers visited gsbarristers.com. But now it appears to be non-operational.
Would you happen to know the cause of these technical problems? And do you know when they might be resolved?
Hope all is well!
We haven’t heard back from them yet, but we will keep you posted.
Oh, and here’s an email we sent to them yesterday:
Dear Messrs. Gallion and Spielvogel:
Greetings. Thank you very much for your message; it’s great to hear from you. I’ve written briefly about your new matter here.
I’m guessing that you and your client will be fairly tight-lipped about this matter. But if you might be able to answer any of the following questions, I’d be most grateful.
1. How long have you been representing Mr. Grinberg?
2. How were you put in touch with Mr. Grinberg? Was it through partners at S&C?
3. In light of your former assocation with the Firm, do you feel that you have the requisite independence to represent Mr. Grinberg in this matter?
4. Is Mr. Grinberg still (a) employed by S&C and (b) going into the office and working normally (i.e., not on vacation or leave)?
5. Is Mr. Grinberg heterosexual?
Please feel free to answer as many (or as few) of these questions as you can. And if there’s anything else you might want to share with the readership of Above the Law, please feel free to do so.
We haven’t heard back yet. But we did make some mistakes in composing this message. We should have advised them of just how exceedingly prestigious ATL is, as a preeminent legal gossip website.
