Is LinkedIn Where Your Clients Get Stolen?

I have discussed the issue of lawyers connecting on LinkedIn where one lawyer had a personal network which included many client relationships.

Many lawyers are apprehensive to directly connect because of the potential that his clients will be raided by other aggressive legal business developers seeking to connect as "friends" on social media with developing rules.

If you know a lawyer who may be worried about this, it is possible to set your profile so that your connections can not see all of your direct connections, but can only your mutual connections (i.e. see LinkedIn profile of Barack Obama).
