Looking for a holiday gift for that lawyer who has everything? Well, they probably don’t have this.

Farr & Beyond, Kenneth SmooklerWe were delighted to get our hands on a copy of Farr & Beyond: Lawyers for the Otherworldly, written by retired Toronto lawyer Kenneth Smookler, Q.C. The book reveals the goings-on at imaginary law firm Farr & Beyond LLP, which stays in business by representing our favourite fairytale characters, like Hansel and Gretel, the Big Bad Wolf and Rapunzel.

What damages is Captain Hook entitled to from Peter Pan for the loss of his hand? In marrying the prince, did Cinderella breach her contract with her evil stepsisters?

In an amusing combination of judge’s rulings, statements of claim, phone conversations and the like, Farr & Beyond explores these legal issues and more.




Farr & Beyond: Lawyers for the Otherworldly is published by Wall & Emerson, Inc. You can buy it online for $19.95.
