Re: Potential Manager Wants 3 Year Contract
I'd ask what her concerns are. As a manager, I wouldn't want to put major amounts of time, effort, and money into a client who jumps to a more flashy agency just as my investment was going to pay off.
My own manager has had this happen to her; she got a career started, then the writers jump ship to a named agency (and then they get lost in said agency, but that's a different story). An out clause for you is perfectly fair; you don't want to get stuck in a bad situation either.
