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, business people, 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 – and always considering the Ethics and Morals involved.

Milton Bordwin is Of Counsel at Rubin and Rudman. Milton joined the firm part-time while still serving as a member of the Harvard Law School Faculty. He is a graduate (cum laude, Accounting) of the Baruch School of Business Administration (City College of New York) and holds degrees from Harvard Law School, J.D. and L.L.M. He is a member of the bars of Massachusetts, New York and the Supreme Court of the United States, where he successfully argued the landmark Federal civil procedure case Foman v. Davis, 371 U.S. 178 (1962). This case has been cited by state and federal courts every working day since the opinion was issued – in more than 25,000 court decisions.
