Adversaries Go Out to Lunch

The CBA Professionalism Committee’s Take Your Adversary to Lunch concluded  with six members named as winners in the annual contest.

Members were challenged between Feb. 1 and March 9 to invite a legal adversary to lunch in an effort to promote professionalism and collegiality. “Lunch duo” winners of gift cards for downtown restaurants included:

Kathleen Cole and Marc Pera
Michael Ganson and Tom Bruns
Richard Porotsky and Don Schneider

Porotsky, of Dinsmore & Shohl, said that the contest was “a great opportunity.”

“Take Your Adversary to Lunch is an incentive to treat each other well,” he said. “We all need incentives. In the heat of a legal battle, everyone wants to win and sometimes treating each other well gets lost. It’s easy to lose sight of the goals of the overall system when you are dealing with a client and trying to win your case.”
