What law firm wouldn’t jump at the chance to represent the President? Well, not if it’s Donald Trump. Multiple law firms have turned down White House interest in representation. While some cited fairly standard concerns about having prior commitments and conflicts, etc., a consistent theme was the concern about whether the president would listen to the advice of his lawyers and that he wouldn’t pay up. Seriously.
Top lawyers with at least four major law firms rebuffed White House overtures to represent President Trump in the Russia investigations.
