Franchise bar: In advanced franchising cultures, there are two archetypal fixers: one for the franchisors and ditto for franchisees.
Everyone else in the franchise bar is lower status individual, dependent on these two alpha males and the evolution of the bar’s sociology: norms, history, rewards/punishments, career advancements, access to law makers/regulators, referrals, who is “us” and who is “them”, etc.
One role of the Tier 2 attorneys is to engage in battles on behalf of the pack when here is a threat.
Their out-of-character behavior explains a lot about a system that created, empowers and defends tyrants.
