Is this normal and am I safe agreeing to this? Would it be reasonable to send back a request for ammendment?
That type of clauses is not unusual, but your decision should be made only in accordance to what is acceptable to you.
Ron Beyer's suggestion of reciprocity is a valid, reasonable approach. I, by contrast, would reject any clause that involves paying the counterparty's attorney fees because these often are abusive. Court costs are oftentimes a very small fraction of what lawyers bill even for a relatively simple case. The fact that this clause refers to actual costs rather than reasonable costs will make it harder for you to dispute the lawyer's overpriced services.
Furthermore, you basically are gambling if your case is presided by literally a felon whose judicial mentality is all about siding with "anybody who's powerful". The clause as submitted to you only raises the stakes (in regard to attorney fees) with essentially no benefit to you.
