Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for. What you wrote probably does what you want it to do. However, I suggeset that you use a general release form which has been tested for ages and is given effect. YOur form tries to achieve the same result but since it uses unique language some enterprises person might find a way to interpret it that avoids the effect you are trying to achieve. Below is a link to a standard general release. Once signed the releasing party cannot bring suit against the released party for any claim that existed at the date the release was signed. If I have answered all your questions, please positively rate my answer as that is how I receive credit. If you have more questions, please let me know. If the answer was especially helpful you can provide a bonus.
