Abstract

Lawyers are usually the first port of call for people who find themselves involved in a dispute. Some clients in this situation will have very clear ideas about what they want. They may seek vindication for an injury, actual or perceived, and the services of a gladiator or a hired gun who can fight for them and win, or at least draw blood from their opponent in the process. Other clients will seek compromise and peace and they will entrust to their lawyer the task of reaching an amicable settlement with other interested parties.
