A consultant has been working for the manager of an investment fund for ten years. At the beginning of their

working relationship, the consultant sent the investment manager a contract for the first year of work, detailing how much compensation he expected and other terms, which the manager never signed or returned. However, shortly after receiving the contract, the manager sent the consultant some work, and the consultant completed it. The consultant continued to do a few projects a year for the manager, though he never sent him another contract. The consultant kept track of his time and sent the manager a bill once a year at the end of the year, which the manager always promptly paid.
