“There’s a classic risk-return tradeoff. You can’t go nuts about every potential risk or you’d never leave your porch. But at the same time, there’s a tradeoff there. And when you see a client who is biting off a huge potential risk, we have a duty at least a flag it, make them aware of it, and say, ‘You can sign it, but this is what you are getting into.’”
