As for doing things on trust. Dont. You're in this for business. It IS a business - your client deserves to be treated as a client - with respect and with contract. No professional would and has ever expected otherwise. Then you and the client can enjoy things. Doing things on trust and you are ASKING to be ripped off. If you are a very successful chap and you have a big name, then yeah - im sure you can do things on "verbal contract" and gents agreement. You have the bigger muscle. Abbey road and Air, or the LSO or the Rolling Stones or lawyers or accountants dont do things on gents agreement - so why should you.
