"Anatomy of an Effective Consulting Agreement” 

Summary: Contracts are one of the most effective tools in setting clear expectations and minimizing risk in business relationships. In this program, we will tackle the important components of consulting agreements and independent contractor relationships including descriptions of services, fee structures, termination provisions, limitations on liability, and the "boilerplate” terms. We will also touch briefly on issues and concerns when working with, or for, other consultants, as well as bright-line rules for differentiating long-term contractors from de facto employees. You will walk away from this program with a deeper understanding of how to read, craft, and negotiate the various aspects of a consulting agreement to protect your business and yourself.
