If for a long time with those prices, it's going to be a very hard sell for you to raise people and I would expect to lose more than average if he's had the accounts for a long time. Any more info you can provide?

That is the first thing that popped into my mind as I was reading this. William I am not sure of the quality of your accounts or how bad you need the business but I would work out a deal with him if you do want to proceed that you will pay him AT MOST half at the end of the first month after you have collected and the other half after you have collected at the end of the second month. This way you insure that your exposure is limited. With those prices there is not a chance in hell he has bothered with contracts.
