When two lawyers have lunch together:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Otherwise, go Dutch.
