LAWYER 2: That's true. But before you can invoke that clause, your client bears the burden of proving all the conditions have been fulfilled.
LAWYER 1: Surely we've done that?
LAWYER 2: Perhaps. But the right to the additional 5% doesn’t vest until payment’s been received on the sales.
LAWYER 1: Payment became due on those sales last month. We're exercising our rights under the 5% bonus clause.
LAWYER 2: Yes, but the clause does state 'upon receipt of the proceeds of the sale'. I'll talk to my client and see what I can do.
