Publisher's Summary

As America's giant law firms start to behave like Wall Street conglomerates, Big Law arrives as an in-the-know, cautionary novel of a legal revolution gone mad.

As a young partner at Dunn & Sullivan, one of New York's most prestigious law firms, Carney Blake has represented dozens of high-profile clients. But being a pawn of Big Law often means defending the corporate dirt bags of the world - the spillers, the drillers, and the killers. Morality aside, Carney is starting to make a name for himself, despite having a father who resents his success and an unpredictable big brother bent on self-destruction.

So when Carney is suddenly asked by his firm's chairman to represent the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit - and not, as usual, the corporate bad guys - he warily accepts. Maybe they're turning a corner, he thinks. And even if they aren't, when else has a junior partner been assigned such a major case, with a possible billion-dollar payout?

But Carney can't fool himself for very long. As he digs deeper into the case, he uncovers corruption and maliciously orchestrated schemes that go straight to the top of Dunn & Sullivan - along with the true motives behind his placement on the case. Written by former top litigator Ron Liebman, Big Law is a thrilling, fast-paced roman a clef that exposes the secrecy, deception, and machinations underlining America's most powerful mega-firms.

    Story
    "Suspenseful"

    This is a new author for me. The main character and first person narrator of the story is attorney Carney Blake. Blake comes from a working class dysfunctional family of Irish alcoholics.
    His boss at the large law firm is Carl Smith. He assigns him a class action law suit from India. He is to be the lead attorney for the first time in his career. Blake is to start proceedings to seize the U.S. asset of a chemical company responsible for the death of workers and a village in India due to a spill of toxic chemicals. The Indian court has found the company libel. It turns out the chemical company hires the major competitor of Blake’s law firm to defend it. Blake starts to become suspicious something is wrong when his boss avoids him. He feels he is in over his head at work, and his brother and father are in chaos.

    The book is well written. The plot is twisting and turning as the suspense builds. The dialogue is strong and well-pointed, particularly in the courtroom sparing. This is one of those books that is hard to put down. If you enjoy legal thrillers, you will enjoy this book.

    The book is about seven hours long. L. J. Ganser does an excellent job narrating the story. Ganser is an award-winning audiobook narrator.
