The Firm is a legal thriller by John Grisham. It follows the story of Mitchell McDeere, a successful lawyer who was raised in the coal-mining region of rural Kentucky, and worked hard to pave his way out of menial labour and poverty. After graduating third in his class at Harvard Law, he marries his college sweetheart, Abby Sutherland.
Bright, young, and ambitious, Mitch has his pick of the big firms in Chicago and New York, but eventually decides to join a small tax law firm in Memphis called Bendini, Lambert & Locke – their offer of a large salary, a low interest mortgage on a house, and a lease on a new BMW automobile is what attracted Mitch.
Several events begin to unfold that fuel Mitch’s suspicion about this well-respected firm. One day, Mitch finally reaches the crux of the matter – the firm is owned and run by the most powerful organised crime family in Chicago – the Morolto family.

When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought that he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired the McDeeres a decorator. Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray–doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail–already knew: You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice–if he wants to live.
