Business decisions are made by guys like me. Don't worry, I have data and have done the forecasts, ROI and evaluation of business risk. I don't need lawyers to help with that. You guys aren't qualified.
I need lawyers to make sure: (a) my crazy schemes don't get us sued/arrested and (b) to make sure I can hold other parties accountable in a contract.
I am interested in your advice as it pertains to the above. I have zero interest in your evaluation of my business judgment.
Lol, you sound insufferable
Heh. Maybe so... and yet this is exactly how business leaders think about attorneys: as a supporting function.
EDIT: by the way, I new several friends from law school who were really pissed about this. My favorite quote: "I'm so much smarter than these business guys yet they make more than me and work less."
Yeah, friend, maybe so... now don't you have a contract to go review?
He may sound like a dick, but this is tough love. Too many 0Ls who dont want to do math go to law school because they think it will eventually let them backdoor into finance or some other business capacity or they will be doing some hybrid of business and law. It's just not like that, and the sooner more 0Ls realize this the better.
Seriously? I must be out of touch then haha, that seems ridiculous
That's because it's not true
Heh, well, what did any of us know as 0L... or even 1Ls... Or 3Ls...
I thought I was going to be "MASTER LITIGATOR".
