Consultancy


Read what Net Lawman says about its consultancy templates:

"These are comprehensive legal documents that cover the commercial and practical points that will be important to both the consultant and his or her client.

Although written in plain English, the concepts are deep and the documents are thorough. Using one of these agreements will enhance your brand as a professional and well organised business, as well as protecting your intellectual property and helping each piece of work undertaken to progress smoothly.

Our contracts are tailored for three types of user:

  • for corporate consultancy (the consultancy company could employ multiple employees, or simply be a structure through which an individual works)
  • for a single self-employed consultant working alone or with colleagues or sub-contractors
  • for the client

The documents for the consultants emphasise the legal structure through which the work will take place. For example, the versions for self-employed consultants emphasise the independence of the contractor for tax purposes.

The versions for the client favour his own interests more strongly than alternative versions."

Template: Consultancy Contract: client version

Read what Net lawman says about this template:

"This contract has been drawn for the client to put to a consultancy business, favouring the client wherever possible, but remaining acceptable to the consultants.

We have taken the view that if anything goes wrong with a major project of the type a large firm would be involved in, there will be more serious consequences than with one where the advisor is working alone. The contract is therefore tough so that it can be used for important projects. However, it is easy to lighten the terms if you do not want to be so hard.

The client could be in any industry, the consultants could be offering help on any type of matter, and the project could be of any size. It could be used on a take it or leave it basis, or as a negotiated document."

What Net Lawman says about this template:

"This contract is drawn for use between members of the same group of companies or any other closely associated parties and sets out how a company provides advisory services to others within the same group.

You may use this agreement to allocate expenses where they should fall, or to separate out the affairs of a subsidiary in preparation for its sale or the introduction of a third party shareholder. The primary reason to use this agreement would be to provide evidence for the supply of services for record keeping (accounting) purposes –the generation of income for one group member and expenses for another, and perhaps the offset of inter-company debts between them."
