I would be most appreciative if someone could answer about this sentence. I found this sentence in an agreement letter.

Under no circumstances shall the waiter look to the Client as his/her employer, or as a partner, agent, or principal.

When i search in Google, Under no circumstances means never do like this and look to means to hope to get help. If so, does this sentence mean the waiter should not expect to get any help from Client as his/her employer, or as a partner, agent, or principal?? I don't understand the usage of as in this sentence.

  • In this context "look to" means "consider". – Andy Schweig Nov 15 '16 at 3:20

  • My reading is that it means that the waiter can not consider the Client as his/her employer, etc. I think the intent of this is as a legal disclaimer stating that the waiter does not enjoy any of the rights, recourses, etc. that are inherent in an employer/employee relationship or any of the other types of relationships listed. – Andy Schweig Nov 15 '16 at 16:44
