In recent years there has been an increase in the use of consultants as they allow businesses to receive potentially high level advice and service while also allowing flexibility in certain areas. Consultancy agreements are required when a business is provided advice on a consultancy basis from an individual.
The agreement typically contains certain specifications such as:
- The purpose of the consultant
- Payment and financial information
- Termination clauses
Consultant agreements can be complex and if not dealt with in the correct manner can lead to legal issues, especially potentially employment law issues.
Our Approach & Our Experience
We provide practical, commercial and coherent advice and are able to deliver a complete service with support from our Property, Employment, Commercial, Dispute Resolution and Private Client teams.
Our ethos is to provide our clients with an alternative to the major regional and national firms by offering high quality legal advice from highly experienced, specialist solicitors, but on a much more cost-effective basis.
We work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations both in terms of their objectives for a particular piece of work and in relation to costs. We are easy to deal with, clear in our advice and understand that a common sense approach is often required. As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work at the outset. We can then provide costs updates on a regular basis. In addition, where appropriate, we are happy to discuss other pricing models (for example, fixed fees and retainer arrangements) if that is helpful to you.
