In Double Billing, A Young Lawyer's Tale Of Greed, Sex, Lies, And The Pursuit Of A Swivel Chair, Cameron Stracher reveals a shocking nonfiction account of the ordeal of a young associate at a major Wall Street law firm. Fresh out of Harvard Law School, Stracher landed a coveted position at a high powered corporate law firm and thus began his grueling years as an associate, a dreaded rite of passage for every young attorney. Only about five percent survive long enough to achieve the Holy Grail of partnership in the firm. As the author vividly describes, law school may teach you how to think like a lawyer, but it is being an associate that teaches you how to behave like one. Or misbehave. Stracher doesn't mince words about the duplicitous behavior and flagrant practices of many lawyers in his firm, which is one of the premier partnerships in America. The result is a tell all glimpse into the cutthroat world of corporate law from the perspective of the low man on the totem pole. This book is similar to One L, but instead of relating the experience of law school itself, this book describes the experiences of one law school student post graduation.
