1. Description of Services
The Company primarily provides fee for hire consulting services. We are a business advisory firm.

You agree to consult independently with your tax advisor or attorney regarding any transactions that you may enter, including this Agreement. The Company is also in the business of creating, collecting and publishing information, media, news and opinions concerning various business and financial issues that may be of interest to businesses, and business owners. The Company also provides certain content for purchase or fee, including but not limited to, educational and informative eBooks and related media, legal and financial form templates, and investor databases (collectively, the “Products”).

Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms will be resolved through mandatory binding arbitration conducted in Portland, Oregon, or the nearest office of J.A.M.S, before J.A.M.S./ENDISPUTE or its successor (“JAMS”) pursuant to the United States Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. (the “Act”), and these Terms. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of J.A.M.S.’s Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time of filing of the demand for arbitration (the “JAMS Rules”). The Terms will control in the event of any inconsistency between this agreement and the JAMS Rules. The parties will cooperate with JAMS and with each other in promptly selecting a single arbitrator from JAMS’s panel of neutrals. If the parties fail to so select an arbitrator within thirty (30) days following the date of either party’s notice of demand to conduct arbitration, then JAMS will appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will set forth findings of fact and conclusions of law. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award will be final and binding upon the parties and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If for any reason JAMS or its successor no longer is in business, then the arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The parties will share the arbitrator’s fees equally and each party will bear its own costs and attorneys’ fees. All papers, documents or evidence, whether written or oral, filed with or presented in connection with the arbitration proceeding will be deemed by the parties and by the arbitrator to be confidential information of both parties. The arbitrator chosen in accordance with these provisions will not have the power to alter, amend or otherwise affect these arbitration provisions or the Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from applying for and obtaining from a court a temporary restraining order and/or other injunctive relief.
The failure of either party to exercise in any respect a right provided by these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of that right or any other rights hereunder.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
The Terms represent the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing, except as otherwise provided herein.
