The typical person on the Clapham omnibus, on becoming aware of what has happened here would see this as an outrageous course of conduct. And any argument that it is 'legal' (if it is) would be met with scorn and derision along the lines 'well that's lawyers for you... always ready to justify what is morally wrong'. Basically, it brings the profession into disrepute (whether or not in the disciplinary sense) when lawyers act as mouthpieces for clients who make outrageously distasteful decisions against their own better interests. 'We were only following orders' doesn't really work in the real world, does it?
