Outten & Golden attorneys have reviewed and negotiated consulting agreements for consultants at all levels and in many different situations and industries. Such agreements take various forms and are designed for various purposes, from trying out a potential employee before hiring to giving a former employee additional severance pay. Our attorneys are familiar with the standard requirements for consultants in different industries and know what is important to our clients and to companies.
We are often able to negotiate changes in companies’ “standard” agreements to make them more favorable to our clients. At other times we can advise and coach clients so that they can negotiate such changes themselves. Our attorneys have helped improve consulting agreements with respect to compensation, insurance, tax treatment, non-compete and non-solicit requirements, litigation and arbitration as enforcement mechanisms, and many other provisions.
