British legal consultant Richard Susskind was quoted in a national publication of the Canadian Bar Association, saying “Clients want a fence at the An ounce of top of the cliff, not an ambulance at the bottom.” This excellent analogy emphasizes that clients will receive the most value and usefulness from legal services designed to prevent problems, rather than arguing about problems that have already arisen.
