Reminds me of my last job I had before I started Fourth World, where one 
of my tasks was doing contract review with our prime contractors, which 
often meant long conversations with senior counsel at Bechtel, Parsons, 
and similarly large firms.

My boss explained my job like this:

"They're job is to ask for the world.  Your job is to ask for half of it 
back."
