Before I begin, I know that you cannot offer me legal advice. I will not hold anybody to anything.

With that being said...

I am starting discussions with a major distributor and I need to sign a confidentiality agreement. I know these are typical, but can the experienced members give me advice. Do I need to have a lawyer at this point? Is there a certain form of legalese I should watch out for? It seems like a harmless document, but I just don't want to over look anything. Any advice?

Below is a copy.

Thanks!
