Honestly, it just depends on the client. If the client is a BTB service provider/seller, you will see a lot of sell side, say, master service agreements. If it's a consumer facing client, you will see a lot contracts on the buy/procurement side - direct, indirect procurement etc.

still there’s not a single good word spoken for me from her side. we do not have any understanding between us, i come from a conservative middle class family, even though i earn well and life is not difficult for me, i live way below my belt.
She and her family has threatened me and my family, that if things don’t fix between us then i will have to bear the consequences, they are rich and wealthy, they will implicate fake legal case against me and my family.

Hi all,
Any suggestions or advice will be really helpful.

Should I approach labour court?



I am deeply shocked and hurt for the kind of things she has spoken for me and for my family in front of everyone, I don’t want to live with her anymore, i am feel very low and lonely but i fear that they would drag my family to the court and imply fake FIR as they say and she said very clearly that she will not let me walk out of this marriage easily.
