Our commercial team has specialist and experienced legal advice regarding the drafting or negotiation of consultancy agreements.
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.
