Tektree - is there a "Right to Represent" clause in your agreement? If you can email me your contract, I'll look at it (although I'm not a lawyer, these cases are normally very straightforward). The issue is not what 'project' a contractor may be working on . . . rather, it's about the statute of limitations regarding how long you can 'represent' him or her. The concept of a 'project' is what we call a "loophole" in contractual language - what I imagine is that there is a dirty player involved… Tektree - is there a "Right to Represent" clause in your agreement? If you can email me your contract, I'll look at it (although I'm not a lawyer, these cases are normally very straightforward). The issue is not what 'project' a contractor may be working on . . . rather, it's about the statute of limitations regarding how long you can 'represent' him or her. The concept of a 'project' is what we call a "loophole" in contractual language - what I imagine is that there is a dirty player involved here that is trying to cut you out (it may be the client, the contractor, or collusion between both). My perception is also that someone is hoping you'll just go away since you can't literally drive to the client site and speak to a VP and/or their General Counsel.

If you have ground to stand on, I'd recommend filing a civil suit against the client for any amounts less than $10k as this can be handled outside of the actual state's Supreme Court.

This leads me to a further question: Where is the work being performed? Is it here in the U.S.? If not, I can't help much as the only other areas I have intimate knowledge of are Hong Kong and the EU as I have a number of clients there.
