    by way of

    "The parties’ endeavours for and support to M [a company] shall be compensated through this contract."

    Could one also write "by way of this contract"?

    Thanks!

    Re: by way of

    Come to think of it, neither "through" nor "by way of" is correct here.

    "The parties’ endeavours for and support to M [a company] shall be compensated under/according to/pursuant to this contract."

    I would replace "support to" with "support of".

    Re: by way of

    Would changing "endeavours" to "efforts" change the meaning in any way?

    Thanks.

    No, it wouldn't change the meaning.

    Re: by way of

    One last follow-up question. Can something (e.g., a contract) come about through the efforts and support of another person? Or is "by means of" more fitting here?

    Thanks.

    Both would work.
