Mik 13 May 2009 Andrew Mitton, I don’t know on what planet you practice but of course most agreements aren’t drafted from scratch. It would be reckless. You’re going to reinvent a 200 page agreement ? But that has nothing to with the fact that every agreement I’ve ever drafted, or any lawyer I’ve ever worked with has drafted, is ALWAYS tailored for the particular deal. And if you think the agreement presented above is acceptable, you should stop practicing law. Just to randomly pick one problem, the fact that severability is discussed twice but using different words is reason enough to throw it in the garbage. I find it so loose I might have to rewrite it because its bugging me.
