Seen in a contract between two large-ish companies which shall remain nameless:
“If [list of conditions omitted], then Company shall have a presumptive right to extend the contract.”
- What’s a “presumptive right?” Is that different from a regular right?
- Is “shall have” different from “will have?” Or, for that matter, “has?”
- All in all, how is “shall have a presumptive right to” different from “may?”
