Consultancy can take many forms: from individual contracts to produce a particular piece of work or to advise upon a particular process, to long-term consulting projects involving large teams, complex issues and a varied and variable services scope.
When engaging a consultant it is important for a business to consider a written contract to set out the terms agreed between the parties. This will ensure that the relationship is clearly defined and will give some protection to both parties in the event of any dispute or problems arising.
Our specialist employment solicitors can draft consultancy agreements that are designed to adapt to a wide range of different circumstances, and which are clear and easy to use. It is important to have a consultancy agreement properly drafted to make sure that it is tailored to the needs of your business.
Key provisions you would find in a consultancy agreement are:
– A description of the services to be provided
– The time period for provision of the services
– The consultancy fee
– Whether the consultant or contractor can appoint a substitute
– Ownership of intellectual property rights
– Termination provisions
– Post termination restrictions
