Just spent 3 days waiting for turnaround on a contract where the other party’s counsel did nothing but twiddle the bits on the confidentiality clause. What a waste of time, productivity, and legal bills.
Don’t get me wrong – the other lawyer is not the only one at fault here. My lawyer is equally to blame.
What the hell? Why is it that my lawyer, and the other lawyer both thought they needed to reinvent a confidentiality clause? Can’t we just create one, have it ratified by the courts and live with it? Why do two lawyers get to rack up wages at $300/hr to modify 2 sentences that they’ve modified a thousand times before?
Lawyers who don’t work on fixing this problem are the problem. They all need to get together, settle this, and stop raping America.
