Consultancy Agreements

What is a Consultancy Agreement?

If you provide a service to an individual or business entity as a Consultant you will want to secure agreed terms on which you will work, including how much you will be paid for those services. Having clear agreed terms at the outset can minimise the risk of disputes at a later stage.

What should we include in a Consultancy Agreement?

How do I terminate a Consultancy Agreement?

The Agreement should state the conditions upon which the parties can bring the arrangement to an end normally by serving notice.

We can draft, review or advise on the terms of a Consultancy Agreement and/or negotiate changes on your behalf. We can take you through the key terms and obligations that you will be agreeing to ensure that you are happy to be legally bound to those terms and advise on any disputes, if they arise.

If you would like us to draft or review your Consultancy Agreement, please contact us.
