One of my afflictions is paranoia regarding and and or. (You may recall my deconstruction of a Toronto restroom notice.)
Consider the following:
If a proceeding seeks to compel the Recipient or any of its Representatives to disclose any Confidential Information …
I’m wondering whether one could improve on that formulation—given that or can be inclusive or exclusive, it’s not clear whether the above sentence would cover a proceeding to compel the Recipient and one or more of its Representatives to disclose information. Here’s an alternative:
If a proceeding seeks to compel any one or more of the Recipient and its Representatives to disclose any Confidential Information …
It’s not particularly elegant, but it articulates the intended meaning without any ambiguity. But I don’t know that I care enough about the possible ambiguity to bother with this alternative version.
[Updated 7:45 p.m. EDT: Thank you to the commenters for pointing out that any ambiguity in the first version is benign. I will begin intensive therapy for my and and or paranoia.]
