Bendini, Lambert & Locke
There are only two ways for lawyers to exit Bendini, Lambert & Locke. They can stick around until they retire as thoroughly compromised, multi-millionaire senior partners, or they die before their time in mysterious circumstances.
The Firm (1993)
The Firm tells the story of a brilliant young lawyer, Mitch McDeere. He’s young. He’s bright. He’s ambitious. Mitch could have the pick of the big firms in New York and Chicago, but he’s chosen the Memphis tax firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke. They’re selective. When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke, he thought 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 him a decorator. Bendini, Lambert, and Locke is just one big family, Mitch is told, but Abby balks when she sees how strongly the firm wants to run both Mitch’s life and her own. And there have been some mysterious deaths of young lawyers at the new company. When Mitch is contacted by the FBI, he learns the real truth about the firm, and he begins to realize that he is in danger. Mitch is a clever lawyer but he will need all his skill just to stay alive when he is caught between his own unscrupulous law firm and the government.
