A principal touchstone of the Firm's commercial and transactional practice is to always recognize that the client, and not the attorney, is the businessperson in the deal. The Firm's transactional and commercial attorneys understand that the Firm's role is to assist in documenting the deal and protecting the client, and not to take over the deal.
