Would like to know when working out an exclusive agreement with an company, do both sides present there own agreement? because the company I'm dealing with, presented there agreement totally different that i want it to be based on, so i want to know should i take my own lawyer to make a totally different agreement or should try working with there's?
State/Country relating to question: New York
You can ask the lawyer to take as much of their proposal as can be used, and then modify it into your counterproposal. I have seen draft contracts go back and forth several times until both sides were satisfied with the final draft, and this is a common way that agreements get hammered out.I hope this information is helpful.
So should i take a lawyer or try to work on there agreement?
You can make a copy, mark in with the changes you want, and have your lawyer review it.
