David Zinc has it all: Big firm, big salary, life in the lawyer's fast lane.
Until the day he snaps and throws it all away.
Leaving the world of corporate law far behind, he talks himself into a new job with Finley & Figg. A self-styled 'boutique' firm with only two partners, Oscar Finley and Wally Figg are ambulance-chasing street lawyers who hustle nickel-and-dime cases, dreaming of landing the big win.
For all his Harvard Law Degree and five years with Chicago's top firm, Zinc has never entered a courtroom, never helped a client who really needed a lawyer, never handled a gun.
All that is about to change.

endearing and gripping
This is unusually for Grisham, a heartwarming story. But still as gripping with unexpected twists and turns as you would expect from such a story spinner. The reading is also well done and makes the complicated legal terms easy on the ear.

An absolute delight
I had not previously read any Grisham books but was so inspired by the enthusiasm shown by participants on Radio 4's "A good read" to this particular title that I decided it was time to take a look. But instead went for the audible format (great whilst driving or walking the dogs).
You will immediately warm to this set of shambolic characters - and you will enjoy every minute of the story - which is exceptionally well read. Can thoroughly recommend. Have now just listened to my 2nd Grisham audible - that was great too...

Worth it in the end
Grisham usually develops his story line and characters very thoroughly and grips the reader in a problem -- usually a David and Goliath -- that needs to be resolved.
The Litigators was less compelling and engaging with regard to both these aspects. However, it was definitely worth persevering with because the resolution was, as usual, satisfying and clever. The reader, Dennis Boutsikaris, although professional, had a drawl and flat tone that contributed to a book that I felt largely lacked Grisham's usual vibrancy and energy.

A slow starter gained pace finished in a hurry
I've been disappointed in John Grisham's later novels but managed to stay with this one to the end. He goes into great detail in bulding his unattractive characters and the lengths they go to to cling onto the coat tails of the big firms, but somehow he scrapes in towards the end.
It was an eye opener to the world of 'ambulance chasers' who have created a monster in the legal system causing bona fide companies and professionals much angst as they are led to the slaughter of their expertise and characters for megabucks by these unsavoury lawyers. That said, it was a good yarn.
