Set around the guns for hire at a fictional Bombay law firm, Kill the Lawyers renders a hilarious account of Big Law-the industry term for large, full-service corporate law firms.
It debuts Edamarra Edwin, an irreverent junior partner who frolics with the law while helping friends and clients through their direst straits. In nine droll stories, Edwin wiles out victory from the most hopeless situations with a little help from his spunky young associate and an old Bombay 'operator'. In their wandering timeline these stories chart the arc of Edwin's astonishing rise in life.
Shishir Vayttaden's long experience as a corporate lawyer gives authenticity to this work of pure fiction, and his skill as a storyteller makes it both deeply engaging and immensely amusing.
