The most important thing a lawyer can do for a client is to listen carefully. Often clients are too close to a situation to see the real issues and a good lawyer should recognize that before trying to give advice. A good business lawyer will first learn what the client's ultimate goal is before offering solutions or ways of achieving that goal. In assisiting the client achieve its goal the lawyer must be flexible and offer solutions that might achieve the goal with less risk than the client's intended course of action. Avoiding problems is always less expensive than trying to repair them. A really good business lawyer is one the client comes to view and willingly consults as a partner in achieving a result; not as an expense to be avoided until problems arise.
