To be most effective in counseling clients – whether it’s consulting or litigation – a lawyer needs to learn how the client operates its business. I do this by studying my client’s business as well as its culture. Obviously, it’s my job to get the best result for the client, but in doing so I also do my best to make the corporate counsel’s job – and their life – easier.
