New book "Big Law Confidential" by D.W. Randolph is released, providing an inside look at what it’s truly like to work for world’s largest law firms

“Big Law Confidential” by D.W. Randolph has been released worldwide. This comprehensive work takes a deep dive into the often-hidden realities of Big Law – the massive, for-profit law firms that rank among the wealthiest and most powerful organizations in business today. These organizations are notoriously opaque, and D.W. Randolph has gathered many years of experience into this first-of-its-kind book to unpack, explain, and illuminate the realities of Big Law. From introducing key players to describing industry economics and dynamics, showing the real process behind earning a promotion to breaking down the recruitment and hiring process, Randolph lays out a complete picture of Big Law, as well as fundamental guidance for anyone looking to start or build a career in the law. 

With an exhaustive collection of inside information, important questions to consider, resources, and actionable tips, the book breaks down every aspect of working in Big Law, providing clear guidance for anyone considering, or currently undertaking, this demanding career path.  

Whoever the reader is, and whatever their questions about Big Law, this is the book for them – from law students wondering if a career in Big Law is the right choice, to attorneys currently working at Big Law firms who want to move up in the ranks and build a lucrative, successful career. 

Based on extensive, firsthand experience at Am Law 100 firms as a practicing attorney and partner, in leadership roles, and a variety of capacities surrounding Big Law, including teaching at a prestigious law school, D.W. Randolph has compiled a thorough, deeply informative book that answers every conceivable question about what really happens in Big Law.

Big Law Confidential: The Comprehensive Guide to the Large Law Firm Work Experience in the U.S. (ISBN: 9798987017210) can be purchased through Amazon. The hardcover retails for $24.99, and the e-book retails for $9.99, or free with Kindle Unlimited. Review copies and interviews are available upon request by contacting the publisher through https://biglawconfidential.com/.
