It’s been a long time since we checked in on the ruins of Heller Ehrman. It seems strange that it’s been over a year since Heller Ehrman announced that it was closing its doors.
Everybody that was going to land on their feet after Heller collapsed has presumably landed. Those who never did get a job back in Biglaw post-Heller have hopefully moved on to other lucrative and rewarding careers.
While most of Heller’s employees have moved on, it looks like some of Heller’s things are still looking for new owners. One tipster reports that you can purchase your own little piece of Heller if you want to:
FYI the art from the Heller Ehrman art collection is up for sale at Bonhams New York:
Sale 17421 – Contemporary and Modern Art
Let’s take a look at what fine pieces of art you can score from the demise of Heller Ehrman.
Check out lot 8017 from Bonham’s Heller sale:
Sold to the Viscount de Chagny. An excellent choice, monsieur.
Lot 8064 then?
Is there an art history major who can help me out? Because when I look at that, I see a Heller Ehrman attorney thinking: “Yes, I definitely think this business model can still work.” But I might be missing something.
If you want to see what other items Heller has for sale, look at lots 8018, 8019, and lot 8020 (which appear to be related pieces); lot 8055; lot 8070; and lot 8073.
Captions ideas are always welcome.
