Violet: Thanks for agreeing to meet with me about the new contract. It’s important that both parties understand and agree to all of the terms before we can move ahead.

Karik: It’s in the best interest of both of our companies for this agreement to be signed, so I’m glad to be here. How should we proceed?

Violet: You and I have both read the contract, but I think it’s useful to go over the main articles to make sure there aren’t any clauses that are objectionable. If you’ll take a look at Article 1...
Karik: This looks in order. The stipulations we asked for are all there. Now if we can move to Article 6, I have a question about the conditions for declaring the contract null and void.

Violet: I’m glad you brought that up. I know that this was a sticking point during the negotiations and I believe we’ve found an acceptable compromise.

Karik: I’m sure you have. Let’s take a look.
