“Two likeable newcomers learn the ropes of corporate law at Nibble & Kuhn – and fall in love – just as that most proper of Boston’s venerable firms comically tries to “rebrand” itself for the Google era. Pompous and arbitrary, the ruling junta of partners at N&K saddles Derek Dover with a high visibility lawsuit just weeks before trial. The diligent young attorney arranges things so that Maria Parma, his sassy aristocratic girl friend, also gets named to the case.”
