Vendors – You must have agreements with all vendors who serve your business. Specifically, if you use creative types, such as web developers, graphic designers, or copywriters. It is very important that these agreements include a “work for hire” clause. Without a “work for hire” clause, you don’t actually own what the vendor is creating for you. Call us if you need a vendor agreement.
As a business owner, you need to be comfortable executing business agreements because every business has at least one of the above relationships. Please contact us if you need help creating a contract that will precisely define the relationship between you and your partner / co-owner, your employees, contractors, customers, and for your website. Having contracts in place protects your business from potential costly litigation and will deter others from taking advantage of you.
If you’re a small or mid-size business owner, call us today to schedule your comprehensive LIFT (legal, insurance, financial and tax) Foundation Audit. Normally, this session is $1,250, but if you mention this article and we still have room on our calendar this month, we will waive that fee.
