As an advisor, the lawyer provides a client with an understanding of his or her legal rights and obligations. As an advocate, the lawyer advances the clients position fearlessly and with vigour. As negotiator, the lawyer seeks a result advantageous to the client relative to the realities of the case and the requirements of fair and honest dealings. As an intermediary, advisor and evaluator, the lawyer seeks to reconcile the interests of both parties.
