Steven Brill, born in Queens, New York, is an American lawyer and journalist-entrepreneur. He is a graduate of Deerfield Academy, Yale College (B.A., 1972), and Yale Law School (J.D., 1975). In October 1978, Brill published his first book <i>The Teamsters</i>. In 1979, Brill launched <i>The American Lawyer</i>, a monthly magazine covering the business of law firms and lawyers across the U.S. and around the world. Among its early contributors were Jill Abramson and Jim Cramer. The magazine is well known for its surveys including the Am Law 100, a ranking of the top 100 law firms. The magazine covered the rise and subsequent precipitous collapse of the law firm of Finley, Kumble, Wagner, Underberg, Manley, Myerson & Casey in 1987.
