Default Re: Bryn Law puts forward 'Gate Approval Process' changes and NDA changes

Bryn Law's proposal is unworkable and will encourage chancers to try their luck. The whole point of the NDA is that it offers protection to us. A serious bidder for the club will never need to worry about it because they will never break the NDA.
Of the last 50 or so NDA's I've signed not one is one sided, every single business we engage in negotiations with expect mutual protections. And very rarely do they need to be negotiated, most I get and certainly the one I send out are fair and reasonable from the outset. Only unfair and punitively one sided NDA's ever cause issues.
If you really want to do something you will find a way, if you don't you will find an excuse.
