Last year, California Lawyer magazine asked many of the state’s top litigators to imagine themselves in deep legal trouble. As in go-to-jail-for-a-longtime-type trouble. Whom, the magazine wanted to know, would the attorneys hire to represent them?
John Keker, at San Francisco’s Keker & Van Nest, replied that he might want to represent himself. But if that weren’t practical, Keker said he’d choose Morrison & Foerster’s James Brosnahan, among others. For his part, Brosnahan said he’d go with Keker.
