Veteran legal issues reporter Kim Eisler takes us behind the scenes into mega law firm Williams & Connolly, guiding us on a journey through the many storied cases that have served to shape current policies in public and private sector alike

For the past twenty years, author and journalist Kim Eisler has covered the law firm of Williams & Connolly, first atAmerican Lawyer Magazine, then for Legal Times and since 1993 as National Editor ofWashingtonian Magazine. More than any other writer, Kim has unprecedented and unusual contacts and relationships with the partners, as well as a background knowledge and familiarity with the firm’s history and personnel over the past two decades.

In Masters of the Game, Eisler sets out to demonstrate how the disciples of Edward Bennett Williams went beyond anyone’s expectations and came to occupy key roles in American culture and business. In the last ten years of his life, Williams, the founder of Williams and Connolly, often said he was building not just a law firm but a monument.Masters of the Game is not only about a law firm, but about how the philosophy and practices of thisparticular law firm have spread out beyond Washington to dominate business, finance, sports and the American psyche itself through its influence with past, present and future political, corporate and media figures.
