The Firm is a 1991 legal thriller and the second novel by John Grisham. It was his first widely recognized piece of work, and in 1993, was made into a film starring Tom Cruise. Grisham's first novel, A Time to Kill, was initially only marginally successful and did not bring the author the attention of the general public.
The Firm were an English rock supergroup comprising former Free and Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers, ex-Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, Roy Harper bass player Tony Franklin, and ex-Uriah Heep drummer Chris Slade. Formed in 1984, the band—although having a distinguished pedigree (and thus qualifying as a supergroup)—had only mediocre album sales, although they did have sellout tours. Page originally wanted former Yes drummer Bill Bruford and fretless bass virtuoso Pino Palladino in the group; however, Bruford was contracted to another label and Palladino had tour commitments with singer Paul Young.
The Firm is a fictional gangland organisation in the popular BBC soap opera East Enders, probably inspired by the notorious real-life criminal gang run by the Krays.
