Law School Teaches WHAT. SOLVED! shows you HOW. Over Bordwin’s 60-year career problems came from clients in 25+ industries (from retailers and medical devices to marine engines and ad agencies, and everything in between). Cases involved 30+ legal specialties (contracts of all kinds; employment situations; non-competition issues; real estate; leases; etc.). In one tale Bordwin had to advise the client that The Law was not the solution to his immediate problem. He recommended a quicker, more practical answer: Public Relations! Some tales explain “strategic lawyering.” Others deal with advocacy – how to argue a case before a judge and win. One tale reminds you of your obligation to negotiate – the legal obligation to “talk.” Then Bordwin tells you when to talk, or when it’s best to say nothing and just listen to the other side.
SOLVED! is written in plain English in an entertaining and conversational style and will be an eye-opener for lawyers, businesspeople, and law and business students, as well as the general reader who wants to get into the head of a strategic lawyer and learn how he thinks and solves clients’ problems.
