Well. it is hard to do well in something you don't enjoy. I'm so sick of taking instructions from clients and drafting this, amending that, without having any input to the transactions. Sure, I can tell you that this clause is not advantageous to you, or you should add this anti-dilution provision to the contract. But besides that, I am basically a robot taking instructions and churning out deliverables. I don't decide the commercial terms of the contract or decide on how to execute the transaction. What's so glamourous about being a corporate lawyer exactly?
