Corporate Ethics a MUSK!

    Corporate Ethics a MUSK!

    Apparently Musk was interviewed by a lawyer at SEC who then went on to join a law firm, which had Tesla as a big account/client. When Musk got to know that the lawyer was working at his "consulting" law firm, he asked them to fire him, to which they flipped the bird. He then threatened to take the work from them and give to another firm. All this for the "insult" of being interviewed/questioned by the lawyer.

    Very well done by the law firm (Cooley) (ahem!!). Rare move, but Musk put in his place.

    I actually appreciate both sides of the story. Good in Tesla and Musk to tell the firm to do what they want and good on the firm for replacing Tesla as a client. (I assume they have some plan to cover shortfalls and not just sue tesla for this..!)

    Good on Telsa for the vindictively trying to get a guy fired because he did his job well in the past? Mmmm.

    Not about that. About not wanting to do business with someone whose face yiu don't like. Subtle differences and all!

    Then change firms, rather than trying to get one little guy sacked.

    That was the result.. If you don't like someone in an organisation you tell them why you cannot do business and the organisation has the option to comply or not. Both parties did what they wanted and parted ways...

    Associates in Biglaw don’t come cheap. Money aside, Musk did not have a business issue with the lawyer, rather a personal grudge. Money doesn’t buy everything. This law firm showed him the door. Rare move, but a great one.
