No Growth at Big Firms: America's 500 largest law firms experienced almost zero growth from 1991 to 1992, according to Of Counsel 500, a publication that reports on the legal profession's demographics. According to Of Counsel, there were 90,000 lawyers working at the top firms in 1992--only seven more than a year earlier. Two firms based in Orange County made the 500 list: Rutan & Tucker in Costa Mesa and Stradling, Yocca, Carlson & Rauth in Newport Beach.

Let's see if I've got this story straight. A man works for many years in his community. He works hard, always trying to do good as he does well. He even marries his childhood sweetheart. One day, a terrible tragedy strikes. Things look bleak. But it is on that day that he learns just how much the community loves him. Earvin Johnson, guess what? You've really had a wonderful life. Magic, you are the richest man in town. MARK KAWAKAMI Los Angeles

The law firm of Rutan & Tucker, one of the county's larger office tenants, has negotiated a new lease at Central Bank Tower in Costa Mesa said by the landlord to be worth about $25 million. The lease is one of the largest in Orange County this year, covering 90,000 square feet over 10 years. Brokers said such a large tenant as Rutan & Tucker probably negotiated a very favorable deal with the landlord, C.J. Segerstrom & Sons.

Two years ago the fledgling Orange County Chamber Orchestra realized that to keep operating harmoniously it needed more than violins and cellos. The nonprofit group required legal assistance for a myriad of tasks, from drawing up contracts with visiting artists to negotiating with the musicians union. A call for help was answered by the Costa Mesa law firm of Rutan & Tucker, which donated a lawyer to serve on the orchestra's board of directors.
