Excerpt from "Ugly corporate opinion questions":
Certainly, there are routine corporate and commercial legal opinions that solicitors are accustomed to seeing and delivering. Those are confusing only to the extent that counsel continue to debate what should be well-settled points in those documents, and because, curiously, clients rarely ask why it is in their interests to get long written opinions that are substantially devoted to telling the client what advice counsel is not providing.
