In addition to Twitter lawyers from Wachtell, stock analyst Jim Cramer vilfies Musk’ conduct – and mindset. Among the adjectives heaped on Musk are “infantile.” 

Meanwhile, Musk’s business Tesla is losing money. Money talks and right now it’s not saying positive things about Musk’s business skills. 

In the legal brawl following Musk’s attempt to exit the proposed Twitter purchase, the entrepreneur is represented by Quinn Emanuel. Can that law firm’s brand also take a hit in this process?
