Your Clients Don't Need You To Explain The Law

Your clients don't need you to explain the law to them. They need you to explain how the law affects their ability to do business. Anything else, writes Olga Mack, Head of Legal at ClearSlide, in The Art and Science of Being Useful to In-House Counsel,doesn't do much good:
Summarizing the news without any commentary is not helpful. By the time I see the alerts I’ve already read most popular newspapers and likely at least browsed the underlying decision.

But you have to tell them what they need to hear. Read the post. And start helping your clients.
