First you state that law firms are bad business. But now your post says the reason for the MM purchase was because of the highly lucrative DC area much of which was law firms for MM -(They had about half of the top 25 by employee size and almost all the real big ones - Arnold and Porter, Williams and Connolly, Fried Frank, Crowell and Moring, Venable, etc.) So where do you stand? Are law firms bad business (original comment) or are they highly lucrative (most recent)?
When Lincoln National was still in business they rented NCPPO for small groups. Principal was with Alliance.
