    I disagree with the title in part because I don't think they are overshadowed. The closing of law firms is a big deal in the country and everyone sends a signal that the current economics of the industry are not healthy. As more firms are finding themselves in tough situations, the economy still in a state of weakness and the level of outsourcing slated to get bigger in the industry, these firms closing or being winded down maybe a signal of what the future may look like.
