Within business organizations, even internal lawyers are often greeted with ambivalence in regard to their participation in business and technical projects. No one likes the idea of being interviewed by a lawyer in connection with an investigation or litigation. But even where there is no immediate specter of becoming a witness in some legal proceeding, lawyers are often seen as hindrances, obstacles who stand in the way of progress by adding a layer of review and taking an approach that is too risk averse. The old adage that the law department is a cost center and not a revenue generator belies this attitude.
