    meaning

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "matter" means in the following sentence:

    The distributor may not bind the company in any manner or matter whatsoever, unless specifically agreed upon in writing.

    Thanks a lot!

    You cold substitute manner/matter with way/thing.

    "The distributor may not bind the company in any way or anything whatsoever, unless specifially agreed upon in writing."

    Meaning that they cannot change the terms of the agreement, nor the product involved, unless specifically agreed upon in writing.

    I am not a teacher.
