Customer Contract Ouch Points
Imagine this scenario: Your customer wants to buy from you and your margins are great, but the customer refuses to sign your bid/proposal unless you sign his material supply agreement—or even worse, his subcontract agreement form—while either assuring you there is nothing to worry about or threatening that if you don’t sign your competitor will!
If this sounds familiar, join SBCA legal counsel Kent Pagel to discuss the ins and outs of executing customer contracts, including what terms are the most problematic to component manufacturers and why. Learn how to negotiate what often starts as a one-sided agreement into something reasonable that won’t expose your company to unnecessary risk.
