A fixer is someone hired or on the payroll of an illegal organization. They can be anything from a hit man to a person that "can get things done", usually illegal. An example of "getting things done" can be intimidating or getting rid of witnesses to a crime, or murdering someone for whatever reason. Very similar to a button man.
