One of the frustrations of being a lawyer is the imperative to recommend the least-risky course of action, even knowing that our clients’ success often requires taking risks. This imperative arises because the lawyer who advises the most thorough (and expensive) approach is beyond reproach when things go bad, whereas the lawyer who tries to give more practical guidance may not be. Being a naysayer becomes the safest bet.
