Is re-writing a contract ethical?

Question Details: I am a freelance art director. I have a new client who has contracted me to design a brochure for which I submitted an invoice with terms they also want to retain my services for 6 month so I submitted my retainer agreement. These are documents that I have used for many years with many clients. The client's lawyers rewrote my retainer agreement combined it with my invoice with additional language and sent it back to me to sign. Shouldn't they have asked for changes if they disagreed with something? I am no lawyer but conflict of interest comes to mind.
