Discussion of the Embedded Patent Attorney

Interesting discussion going on about the concept of the embedded patent attorney as in this post from Matt Buchanan. I must take issue, however, with this assertion by Russ Krajeck that "the patent attorney has much more propensity than any other specialty" to become "embedded" in a client's business.

I agree with the position of Matt Buchanan that the concept of becoming embedded applies to other legal specialties. As a business and technology attorney who focuses on transaction work, becoming deeply conversant with my clients' businesses is what I do every day.
