Consultants regularly require contracts and other legal documents. Since the language contained in these documents can have a substantial impact on the financial health and well-being of a consultant’s business, a basic understanding of the language can reduce one’s liability exposure and legal expenses.
This talk will address the key contract language and clauses that should be included in numerous documents, including the following:
â?¢ consulting agreements
â?¢ partnership agreements
â?¢ corporation bylaws and articles
â?¢ operating agreements for LLCs
â?¢ covenants not to compete
â?¢ non-disclosure agreements
â?¢ confidentiality agreements
â?¢ licensing agreements for patents, trademarks or copyrights
â?¢ commercial leases
â?¢ employee manuals (as employer or employee)
â?¢ insurance policies
This talk will examine sample language and the issues raised by this language.? However, listening to this talk cannot substitute for the competent legal advice of a qualified attorney.
