Protecting Your Information

Consultants often share intellectual property with clients as part of their services. We safeguard your intellectual assets by implementing a crucial safeguarding clause. We protect our client’s intellectual assets by ensuring intellectual property rights only pass when you have received payment. This critical clause ensures clarity and protects your valuable creations.

As an independent contractor, consultants retain the ability to use materials they develop across various projects. Our dedicated lawyers structure agreements that preserve your rights and mitigate potential risks associated with IP disputes. Especially, if you're concerned about someone using your work without permission or dealing with ownership issues.

Capturing these risks in the professional services contract is important. With our expertise, you can focus on delivering exceptional services. We will ensure the security of your intellectual property rights and defend your legal interests.

Debt Collection and Payment Terms

Consulting agreements should contain clauses that address how and when the independent contractor receives payment. Our legal team ensure that payment terms are industry standard. We will also ensure you can regularly invoice your client and that you are not subject to unfair set-off clauses.

If clients are not paying you on time, we can assist with legal services to help recover the debt. Our lawyers can prepare a letter of demand, statutory demand, commence legal proceedings and other debt recovery strategies.

Unfortunately (despite all the positive reviews) our experience with Prosper was extremely disappointing and I have fed this back to the firm. We had one of our lead-in consults with an Associate Lawyer at Prosper on Tue 21.11.23 (15mins) and in LESS THAN 2 days we accepted Prosper's contract/terms, only to be told "we do not have the capacity to take on this matter". We were instead told, "you can use the “Find A Solicitor” function on the Queensland Law Society website to find a lawyer”. During this period there had been no change to the content/scenario regarding the matter whatsoever. It made the whole interaction with Prosper frustrating and unrewarding for us personally.

How did you hear about us?

Consulting Contract Law FAQs

What is your approach to reviewing, preparing and negotiating contracts?

We will adapt our approach based on your instructions. Our team of contract lawyers have extensive experience and can create your contracts to your preference.

Prosper Law can review, draft, and negotiate your consulting agreement in a friendly and commercial manner. We can also take a firm approach if needed. We will confirm which approach you would like us to take before starting work.

Our initial scoping call with you will seek to identify recurring issues that your business experiences. We will also explain terms that may be problematic and provide ideas to manage these issues.

Will you consider my consulting firm's professional relationships during negotiations?

Yes, we will always take steps to protect your business’s relationship with clients. If we become aware that contract negotiations or particular terms may cause problems with clients, we will advise you. You can then decide how you would like to address these issues in your consulting agreement.

When we ask for changes to a consultancy contract, we give clear and detailed explanations for why we request the change for your business. In our experience, this ensures that we leave the door open for negotiation and alternative clause wording.

What else do your consulting agreement review services include?

We can tailor our consulting review services to include reviewing:

  • indemnity clauses
  • limitations of liability and consequential loss exclusion clauses
  • insurance requirements (including anything that may sit outside your insurance coverage)
  • clauses that may prevent you from relying on information or being responsible for the work of others
  • strict obligations regarding timing and deadlines, including liquidated damages
  • certifications, deed polls, deeds of novation and deeds of covenant
  • confidential information and intellectual property obligations
How can I manage sub-consultants through our consulting agreements?

Prosper Law can help consulting firms manage sub-consulting risks, draft subcontracts and comply with head contract requirements.

Poor quality consulting services can lead to professional indemnity claims. For this reason alone, it is important to engage with a consultancy agreement lawyer to manage this risk.

For example, a head contract may require you to pass terms through to your sub-consultant. A sub-consultant may also need to provide information that you are relying on. They may also need to meet minimum insurance requirements.

Can you provide me with tools to manage consulting contract reviews internally?

We can provide training, templates, contract manuals, and other tools to assist you.

Our consultancy agreement manuals provide a valuable guideline for your team. The manual can help your team to understand how and when to negotiate contract changes. Our contract manuals will combine:

  • information from insurance policies
  • internal processes and delegations of authority
  • legal and commercial risk profiles

We can also prepare template contracts. Our range of template agreements includes:

  • consultancy agreements
  • fee proposals
  • joint venture agreements
  • non-disclosure agreements
  • variation forms
  • other professional services contract templates

Take steps towards protecting your professional consulting firm. Contact us today for a no-obligation, fixed-fee quote (or ask us about our affordable hourly rates).

Why do we need to review consulting contracts?

An experienced consultancy agreement lawyer should review, negotiate, and prepare professional consulting contracts. Several reasons arise for this, including:

  • the effectiveness of your professional indemnity policy may rely on the terms of your consultancy contract
  • professional consulting agreements can range from fair to extremely unfair. An experienced lawyer will understand what terms are appropriate
  • the contract terms and conditions allocate legal and commercial risks
  • your business may give up important legal rights by accident
  • the client often prepares consultancy agreements that do not favour the consultant

Our consulting contract lawyers will include key terms in a consulting agreement. This will help lower risk and protect your business.

Issues may also come up when you are providing services and throughout the term. Our team has extensive experience in consultancy contracts and problem management.

What if a dispute arises?

Prosper Law can assist your business with dispute resolution processes.
We will review the written agreement and the circumstances surrounding the dispute. Once we understand the issue, we can provide you with a strategy to resolve the issue and a fixed fee quote.
