Re: Report Report Report
Yes, this is the reason I hesitate. This doc will be read by brokers, lawyers, accountants, etc. Some will be terrifically literal, and who knows what approach the lawyers will take. I'm thinking that as painful as the repetition is, it lacks ambiguity, and that may be the CYA factor with this audience.
It depends upon the lawyer?
I've worked with several of them over the years, and most of them read fast when doing legal research, until a likely looking combination of words catches their attention and forces them to slow down until it's marked for later reading or discarded as not really appropriate.
I'd assume that they'd use the same skills when skimming a table of contents. I can actually hear one of the lawyers I worked for, on looking at the apple pie title, saying something like, "Yes, yes, yes. I know all about making apple pie, but how do I get a report on it?"
