New Novel From Best-selling Legal Author Taps Into Stress And Corruption Of BIG LAW World

For Stress Awareness Month, let’s take a look at the lawyers.
TORONTO - April 3, 2014 - PRLog -- Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month – or were you too stressed to notice? Our contemporary world is rife with a myriad of stresses, none more so than in the professional arena. In particular, stress in the legal profession has been much studied and highly documented. For example:

* 15-18% of attorneys will have substance abuse problem vs. 10% of general population.

* Over 1/3 of attorneys say they are dissatisfied and would choose another profession if they could.

* Attorneys have the highest rates of depression and suicide of any profession.

“The law is mysterious, complex, powerful, frightening,” says best-selling legal author Philip Slayton. He was partner in a high-profile Bay Street law firm for almost twenty years, and this stressful world of Big Law was the natural setting for his first novel.

Piper Fantouche, beautiful junior partner in a large establishment law firm, is caught up in corporate and personal intrigue that leads to disaster and death.

“The plight of women in these kinds of institutional settings interested me in particular,” says Slayton. “It gives an additional edge and poignancy.”
