You really are not reading what I have said. We did NOT SIGN ANYTHING to indicate that we had agreed with the terms. That is the point. We have, however, worked with him for seven years and I am sure he would argue that demonstrates we had agreed even though he has no tangible proof. You wouldn't think the senior partner in a very, very large legal company could be that stupid, would you? I don't want to fight another legal case with him, but I do want to argue down his costs knowing that the law supports my argument.
Thank you Alex, that is what I suspected. It also probably explains why he is so aggressive about this as he has realised the mistake he has made re the contract. Unfortunately he is a bit of a bully, but that is probably what it takes to get to the position he is in.
