    word order

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether the following word order is correct? (I need to end the sentence with "by and between"):

    Contract for Work entered into within the meaning of Section 234, paragraph 3 while applying the provisions of Section 548 of the Commercial Code, as amended, by and between:

    Thank you very much.

    The phrase is fine, but these commas are odd: ...,as amended,....

    and would the whole sentence be OK without the commas if the words "as amended" relate only to the commercial code?

    What about moving 'by and between', say, here?

    Ex: Contract entered into by and between...

    Yes, I could say it so. I just wonder, whether it would be possible to end the sentence with "by and between:". Do you think that my first version without the commas would be correct?

    Thanks a lot.

    You'll have to make that choice.

    so both versions are gramatically correct?
