Arthur Liman (1933 - 1997) was an American trial lawyer. A prominent partner at the New York law firm of Paul, Weiss, he had a distinguished career spanning four decades. He represented moguls and big corporations, but was also well-known through his public service record. He served as counsel for the New York state investigation into the 1971 Attica prison uprising, and then as chief counsel for the Senate Iran-Contra hearings in the mid-1980s.
The book “Lawyer” is about the anecdotal nature of Liman’s work, primarily cataloging his successes and failures. This autobiography was completed after his death.
