General counsel who travel frequently, especially those of global companies, need stamina

This is a hard-won and good lesson from Michael O’Neill, the General Counsel of Lenovo, stated in in E. Leigh Dance, Bright Ideas: Insights from Legal Luminaries Worldwide (Mill City Press 2009) at 32 (See my post of July 10, 2009: health and welfare with 15 references and 4 metaposts.).
