A Highly Entertaining Legal Novel,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Getting It (Paperback)
I highly enjoyed this debut work by Professor Shaviro. "Getting It" is a very fast, fun read about three senior associates in a last-ditch battle for partnership. Unlike many other very good (The Firm, In the Shadow of the Law) legal novels set in law firms, "Getting It" is a more satirical portrayal of big firm life, and it is the better for it. Although Shaviro appears to have worked in private practice (at a smaller firm) for just a few years, he precisely captures some of the "moments" of firm life in a way that left me laughing out loud.
Overall, "Getting It" was significantly better than I expected. Really, an excellent read. As a tax lawyer, I only wish he had written it about tax associates! But I suppose litigation is more relatable and has more mass appeal. Perhaps the next time around...
