And you are bored!! Find a new job and I'll have yours - I used to work for the Govt in the UK in a legal team and am sure I can happily be bored for obscene amounts of money and no work

Totally agree... but lawyers should never make the commercial decisions. They should only make the legal ones. Don't get above your role

In several decades of dealing with external lawyers I've only met a handful who I'd trust to make commercial decisions. And in many instances out here I don't trust their drafting skills either...

You presume too much my friend, I am dual qualified (commercial and legal) and not solely employed as a lawyer. The dual qualification is the reason for my inflated salary.
