Eh? What's sour grapes about it? Careless and reckless commenting pointing fingers at the firm you just acted opposite. One wonders if you ran amok during negotiations as well.

Umm.....I have seen many articles for similar and more complex deals were the investor counsel was represented by a team led by a single partner....so you have clearly not understood the meaning of efficiency, ability and going easy on the client's pocket.
