No, I am referring to having an ongoing arrangement with a client, reviewed and resigned every 12 months, where you actually provide a service and ongoing advice to that client within each and every one of those 12 month periods. The only people complaining about grandfathering coming to an end are those who aren't servicing all of their clients right now, likely because they have so many on their books where they physically can not provide the services they are being paid to provide.
If they serviced them, they would just have them sign a 12 month agreement when they provide them advice. If the client is getting value back, they sign it.
