Confer – this Latin verb means to compare (something) with another similar thing. In practice, usually in the area of Commercial Law, a buyer may compare prices of proposed to him goods for sale; and then to purchase the one that fits his needs most. Another example, within the Conveyance procedures, where the real estate investor compares terms and conditions of proposed private purchase contracts to him, before choosing where to invest his money.
Another, modern meaning of this term is to deliberate, to discuss something. When two parties have opposite positions in relation to prospective deal, it is normal to perform a meeting and to discuss the points which they are of no agreement.
