Using two separate, signed contracts for one business deal sounds off to me
too. I second what Gene said. Use one contract for one business deal, always
and forever.
Remember, every single clause in a contract can and should be negotiated.
Before the contract is signed. After a contract is signed is when you may
well need a lawyer, if there's trouble.
As to whether a company's insisting on using two contracts for a single
thing is common practice: I doubt it.

This sounds like welfare for lawyers to me. If you and the company
each have standard contracts, you should review them both and then
merge them together. If necessary, use addendums. If the client has
a contract, I use it, and negotiate which of their provisions is to be
voided and what additions are needed and then just dispense with
my own.

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?
