I am a US citizen working in Germany for a German company. There are some circumstances that may result in a breach of contract. There is a chance I will have to quit or could possibly be fired. I need to find someone who is an expert with German and American contract law.The cover letter of the contract states that this contract has been agreed upon between myself and the company, but on the signature page...it states that "by signing this document, the parties confirm tha they have both received a copy of this contract." Is this official?

Thanks for your response. More specifically, the question I wish to ask is since I signed the page below the quoted statement ("by signing this document, the parties confirm tha they have both received a copy of this contract."), does that mean that I have agreed to the contract terms or does that just mean that I have received a copy of the contract?
Dear Custoer,your signature has a doble meaninga) as with all contracts it means that you have agreed to the contents of this contractIf you claim otherwise you have to prove itb)It means as well that you have received a copy as to fulfill the conditions of the NachweisgesetzIf your question is answered please click acceptthank you
