When Diane Lockharts life savings are lost, she must start from scratch at a new firm.
Picking up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of young lawyer Maia Rindell, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockharts savings. Forced out of Lockhart and Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicagos preeminent law firms.
Season 4 finds Reddick, Boseman, and Lockhart navigating a very different landscape. After they lost their biggest client, Chumhum, and their founding partners name was tarnished, Reddick, Boseman, and Lockhart was forced to accept an offer by a huge multinational law firm, STR Laurie, to become a small subsidiary. Suddenly, all of their decisions can be second-guessed by the giant firm that is literally on top of them. While STR Laurie initially seem like benevolent overlords, we find Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and her colleagues chafing at their loss of independence.
