Early in the 20th century, a new type of lawyer was born, one who understood business as well as the law. Working hand in glove with their clients, these New York City "white shoe" lawyers were architects of the monopolistic new corporations, but also steered their robber baron clients toward more enlightened corporate behavior. Here former Wall Street lawyer John Oller looks back on the lawyers who reshaped the American economy and paved the way for the Panama Canal, and his history abounds in larger than life figures like J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, lawyer-statesman Elihu Root, and presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Woodrow Wilson.
