A new novel entitled “Big Law” was published today by author Rob Liebman (@) and publisher Penguin Random House. Big Law, as the novel’s website details, “exposes the secrecy, deception, and machinations” underlining powerful mega law firms. John Lescroart, in review of Big Law, described it this way: “Big Law has it all. A locomotive drive, a fantastic, appealing, big-hearted narrative voice, and an inside and very entertaining look at the intersection of big law and big business. Smart and truly unputdownable.”
A synopsis of Big Law (from RonLiebman.com)
“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 à clef that exposes the secrecy, deception, and machinations underlining America’s most powerful mega-firms.”
