More on Tax Lawyers Who Make $1,000/Hour

Following up on Thursday's post, G-Men -- Tax Lawyers Who Charge $1,000 Per Hour: some thoughts on Tax Lawyers Who Make $1000/Hour or More by Tom Smith (San Diego):

I always tell my students that if they are smart enough to be tax lawyers and if they find it at all interesting, they should do it.  The actual practice of the taxation of M&A is much more interesting IMHO than the corporate law of M&A. ...OTOH while tax is more intellectually challenging than any other area of law I can think of, it is extremely dry in the way math can be. Not dry as boring, but dry in the sense of being abstract and arithmetical.
