Season 2, 3, 4 & 5
"Nathan "Nate" Ford is a former insurance investigator and the leader of a team staging elaborate cons for clients victimized by those holding wealth and influence to avoid legal reprisal.
The team comes together when Victor Dubenich, a wealthy aerospace executive, persuades Ford to lead a team of talented criminals to steal aeronautical plans allegedly stolen from him by a competitor. After a successful heist, Dubenich withholds their payment and attempts to have them killed, whereupon they implicate him in a bribery attempt, which leads to his arrest by the FBI. Thereafter, they practice similar deceptions to avenge civilians who cannot use the legal system to redress their grievances. Subplots include relationships between Nate and grifter Sophie Devereaux, between computer hacker Alec Hardison and "hitter" Eliot Spencer, and between Hardison and thief Parker. The team operates free of scrutiny as "Leverage Consulting & Associates", until Nate's former colleague, James Sterling, attempts their capture, whereupon they steal a collection of valuable art from Nate's former boss, Ian Blackpoole (returning it in return for Blackpoole's being kicked out of his own company), and disband for six months. In Boston, Nate's hometown, they resume their activities, still followed by Sterling, until Nate surrenders to the latter in exchange for the others' freedom, finally admitting to Sterling and himself that he is a thief. As season three begins, Ford is in prison, while the team attempts to free him, until a mysterious Italian woman blackmails the team into bankrupting the untouchable criminal Damien Moreau. At the season's end, Moreau is imprisoned in San Lorenzo, a fictional European nation formerly under his control.
Season 4 opens days after their return from San Lorenzo, the team discovering that someone has been bugging their headquarters, later identified as the wealthy businessman Jack Latimer, who has been profiting by their victories and now offers information on the evildoings of other major corporations, in exchange for profit on each company's downfall. Nate refuses this offer, and his suspicions are justified when Latimer is revealed to be working with Victor Dubenich (the team's first victim) against the team.
Season 5 opens with Nate having moved the team to Portland and setting up shop in a microbrewery, but the season premiere ends with the revelation that Nate is working with Hardison on a secret project unknown to the others. After a series of extremely intricate confidence tricks, the secret project is revealed and carried off, despite the recurrent Sterling. The season's final episode, broadcast on Christmas Day 2012, also reveals drastic changes in the lives and dynamics of the team, but assures the audience of their continuity." -IMDB
