Projects/Issues per Client

In JIRA we create different projects for each client and of course have multiple projects per client. What's the best way then to summarize/group all issues per client?

I was thinking to create a custom "Client" field on Issues, but then that seems a bit silly because the client really is tied to the Project for the issue. Is there a way to automatically set the client value based on the Project being used in the Issue? ... or is there a better way I am not seeing?

I've done this by having project categories represent the client (works even better when you have many projects per client)

Thanks Nic. This is seems to make the most sense.
