Lawyers know the law, managers know how to make business decisions. Often, managers complain about the typical lawyers' answer "it depends". On the other hand, lawyers may suffer from the fact that they are sometimes called in the last minute of a negotiation to review the legal aspects of a deal; or even worse: if their legal assessment on the project is feared ("no"), they may even be avoided. How can both positions be reconciled? This is where contractual risk management comes in handy.
