Hi, all! I've been contracting for several years, but mostly for
small companies. I am now in the process of trying to get a contract
signed with a large company for a new hourly rate project. After many
e-mail discussions regarding minor changes to "my" contract, today I
was presented with "their" boilerplate consulting contract. This
contract has several clauses that conflict directly with the text of
my contract, These clauses are clearly not in my best interest (like
giving up the right to trial by jury in a dispute).

My contact says her company always signs the consultants contract and
has the consultant sign theirs. Is the process of signing "two"
contracts common? (I've never done it.) If I sign them, which contract
takes precedence--perhaps the one signed first, or last??

Thanks in advance for any advice or helpful links. I wish I could
afford a lawyer to review their contract, but right now I cannot.
