Re: Insurance questions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Kate,

Your client is either *very* sophisticated and is trying to take advantage
of you innocence,
or is *very* Unsophisticated and is trying to cover his/her butt at your
expense.  If you anticipated fee for this project is less than $5,000 then
it's not even worth talking to a lawyer about, and then having to *educate*
your client.

The problem here is not *legalese*,  it's the client.

Walk away from it, or insist that the *client* indemnify *you*.
