The client, not the lawyer, decides what the objective or the representation is going to be.
The distinction between the “objective” of the representation and the “means” is not a clear line. The distinction between "objectives" and "means" is clear at either end of a spectrum but notoriously and unavoidably ambiguous in the middle range. Generally, the objective of the representation is the purpose of the engagement, and the means of achieving the purpose are the tactics or strategy used. This video reviews scope of engagement, creation of the relationship, duty of communication and confidentiality.
