- Publisher's Summary
- Lloyd Constantine gives us the insider's story on the biggest antitrust lawsuit in history, a case that pitted his small firm against financial-industry giants Visa and MasterCard, along with Clifford-Chance, the largest law firm in the world. Combining the real-life legal drama of "A Civil Action" with the relentless pace of a John Grisham novel, Constantine delivers the account of a case that made history and will be studied for years to come. "Priceless" travels from corporate backrooms to the courtroom to capture one of America's biggest triumphs in the high-stakes world of antitrust litigation.
