The most likely outcome of the Big Four's interest in legal services is:

  • Existential threat to most of BigLaw: They have the $$, armies of professionals, and F500 boardroom entree (51%, 67 Votes)
  • Limited and halting because of internal wrangling: they'll never see legal as a core competence (19%, 25 Votes)
  • Narrow, "commoditized" work at the very low end: We don't want this work anyway, so there (18%, 24 Votes)
  • We've got a few hundred really good lawyers here; wanna talk? (7%, 9 Votes)
  • Failure even if they come in: we've seen this movie before (late 1990's, MDP's, Arthur Andersen, etc.) (5%, 6 Votes)

Total Voters: 131
