That’s what «Michael Clayton» is about
Michael Clayton ( George Clooney ) has the right solution in store for every mishap his clients have. He is a so-called «fixer» who also uses less legal methods if it helps the clients of the respected New York law firm Kenner, Bach & Ledeen’s. There has been panic there for some time because Clayton’s brilliant colleague Arthur Edens ( Tom Wilkinson ) has gone mad:
He’s made a fool of himself naked in an underground garage and after a nervous breakdown is determined to pee on the leg of the chemical manufacturer U/North, for which Kenner, Bach & Ledeen’s is supposed to avert a billion-dollar lawsuit. He wants to tell the truth and tear the group down with it. Company boss Marty Bach ( Sydney Pollack ) assigns Clayton to Eden as a minder. But the star lawyer is getting more and more out of control…
