9780312205553: The Money Lawyers: The No-Holds-Barred World of Today's Richest and Most Powerful Lawyers

The Money Lawyers vividly describes how lawyering has become a money-driven business, not just a profession. It explores the lucrative world of class-action litigation, where plaintiff lawyers - "The Class-Action Club" - garner billions of dollars in damages and fees through suits against manufacturers of items such as breast implants, asbestos, and diet pills.   Also featured are the new super-lawyer David Boies of IBM/Florida vote fame; the Washington, D.C., lawyer-lobbyist Tom Boggs; and the mess divorce of securities "strike-suit law" William Lerach of San Diego and Melvyn Weiss of New York. Additionally, the dark side of "white-shoe law" is detailed in an account of how a Wall Street firm cast out partners so that survivors could make more money, and the price the firm paid for its blatant disloyalty.
