When two lawyers have lunch together:

  1. If there is a significant difference in the size of the firms to which each lawyer belongs, the lawyers from the larger company should pick up the bill.
  2. If one of the lawyers works for a nonprofit and the other does not, the lawyer from the for-profit firm should pick up the bill.
  3. The lawyer should always pay for the client. However, if the client orders an inappropriately-expensive meal, go ahead and charge it to the client.
  4. Otherwise, go Dutch.
