There are two things I love the most about my practice. The first is that because my transactions and clients are so varied (on one hand, I can be representing a national developer and on the other, a local religious corporation), I learn so much from my clients and their business when I help them to solve their issues. As we say around the office: "Every day is a school day." The second is the relief, comfort and value adding that my clients receive when I finalize a transaction for them. It is great to know that people truly appreciate my services and are grateful for my assistance in guiding them through their legal issues. –Eon
A NDA can be an important tool in real estate transactions for protecting one's confidential or proprietary information.
