Synopsis

In a city where wealth and power rule, everyone strives to make it to the top. For five eager and attractive law associates, being accepted into one of Los Angeles' most prestigious law firms is the first step on their way up.

But as they soon realise, the law offices of Sterling are far more cutthroat than they could have ever imagined and they must fight for themselves and their clients to stay afloat in these shark infested waters.

These young and impressionable associates are immediately thrown into cases and forced to deal with the emotional and ethical decisions that come with the job they've worked so hard for.

Dylan (Matt Long) is given an impossible pro bono custody case, Beth (Leah Pipes) keeps mum when a 90-year-old man signs an agreement thinking that she's his daughter, Liam (Ben Lawson) must get a client to sign with the firm under false pretenses, Addy (Tina Majorino) finally gets some attention from her boss when she speaks her mind and Malcolm (Mehcad Brooks) gets off on the wrong foot when he is hired outside of the firm's traditional process.

While these five ambitious associates struggle to adjust their appetites and ideals to the fast-paced demands of their jobs, they're faced with the warring partners at Sterling who hold the keys to their future, and a reluctant mentor, Rowdy (Norbert Leo Butz), who tries to guide them and the firm through the trenches.

For Dylan, saving face with one partner in particular is much more difficult after he falls for the firm's paralegal — unbeknownst to him, she's already in bed with firm partner Cliff Huddle (Billy Zane), who is married to fellow partner Susan Oppenheim (Nicole Ari Parker), and fighting for the soul of the firm with its namesake, Hart Sterling (Clancy Brown).
