For corporate executives and managers, millions of dollars, long-term prospects, and the ability to capitalize on lucrative opportunities all depend on the skills of those charged with making deals. For attorneys, the fate of their clients may hang in the balance, whether they are negotiating high-level executive compensation or severance agreements, or they are attempting to obtain a favorable outcome that spares their client from the uncertainty and costs of litigation.
