“My relationship to my client is that of a commercial advisor and a lawyer, and those two roles are 1A and 1B in terms of importance. Giving commercially useless legal advice is of no value. I see the most important part of my job to be ensuring that the firm’s clients are empowered by the law, not crippled by it.
