A basic issue in the law governing lawyers is the identification of an attorney's client. Various duties, obligations, and rights arise from the attorney-client relationship. In the case of the individual who is a client, the answer is relatively easy. But in the case of the organizational client, the issue becomes more complex and the answers still are evolving. Indeed, the answer may differ depending on the legal context in which the question is asked and on the individual values being served.
