, The Am Law Daily


Lance Armstrong's decadelong fight to clear his name of performance-enhancing drug use officially ended last week with a much-publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    I'd be surprised if Lance did not have most if not all of his assets protected in trusts that can't be touched by judgment creditors. This guy's legal team makes OJ Simpsons's "Dream Team" look like a bunch of punk amateurs in comparison. Lance Armstrong will go down in history as being one huge boon for the legal industry and they will continue to profit off of him for many years to come.
