Top lawyers/executives speak out

The Washington Legal Foundation, a free-market legal advocacy organization, has published a recent "Conversations With . . ." piece in which former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, a leading advocate for legal reform, leads a discussion with three business leaders on the topic. Participating in the forum are Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, Chairman and CEO of American International Group; Bernie Marcus, founder and former Chairman of Home Depot; and Steve Hantler, Assistant General Counsel of DaimlerChrysler. Check out this entertaining and informative read for a better understanding of how the litigation explosion is affecting American business.
