Our Consulting Contract Legal Services


Consulting Services Agreement Template

A template consulting agreement is a must-have for service providers. We have drafted fee proposal terms, master services agreements and other consulting agreement template terms. Our clients benefit from user-friendly legal documents that require minimal legal knowledge and are plug-and-play.

Choose Prosper Law if you want a consulting agreement that allows you to focus on your fee and scope, without worrying about whether you are legally protected.


Contract Review Services

If your client provides a consulting agreement for you to sign, we recommend that you seek legal advice. Our contract review services are affordable and can make the difference between a profitable project and a poor-performing project.

We review client contracts, prepare departure schedules, tender response forms and other contract review services to give you peace of mind.


Protecting Proprietary Information

The consulting relationship often requires a consultant to hand over intellectual property to the client. We protect our clients’ intellectual assets by ensuring intellectual property rights only pass when you have received payment.

As an independent contractor, consultants can use material that they develop on other projects. Our consulting contract lawyer will ensure you are not responsible for intellectual property issues that are caused by the other party.


Debt Collection and Payment Terms

A consulting agreement will contain clauses that deal with how and when the independent contractor gets paid. Our legal team ensure that payment terms are industry standard, can be regularly invoiced and not subject to unfair set-off clauses.

If you are experiencing difficulty getting paid on time from your client, we offer debt recovery legal services. Our lawyers can prepare a letter of demand, statutory demand, commence legal proceedings and other debt recovery strategies.

I needed a business sale lawyer to help me sell my business on short notice. They drafted a business sale agreement for me. Courtney was quick to reply, explained the process to me and was great to deal with. If anyone is after a good M&A lawyer, definitely reach out to Prosper Law.

I contacted Prosper Law because I needed a contract lawyer in Brisbane for an issue with a building contract. Farrah and Micaela are experienced contract lawyers and were polite, professional, and provided my advice quickly. They provided me with a fixed fee quote with no hidden costs for the legal work and spoke to the QBCC on my behalf. Thank you to the Prosper Law team for giving me detailed advice that was good value and very helpful!!! Highly recommended and will be using them in the future for all my legal needs.

Consultancy Agreements

Importance of Consulting Contract in a Business

A consulting contract is an agreement between a professional advisor and a client. A consulting agreement is an essential tool for consultants and can make all the difference when it comes to claiming variations

Consulting Contract Law FAQs

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

We will adapt our approach based on your instructions. Our highly experienced contract lawyers can take a friendly and commercial approach or a firm approach to reviewing, drafting and negotiating your consulting agreement. We will confirm which approach you would like us to take before starting work.

Our initial scoping call will seek to identify recurring issues that your business has experienced. 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 make an informed decision as to how you would like these issues to be addressed in your consulting agreement.

When requesting changes to a consultancy contract, we provide detailed, simple explanations as to why a change is requested. In our experience, this ensures that the door is left open for negotiation and alternative clause wording.

What else do your consulting agreement review services include?

Our legal review services may also include reviewing:

  • indemnification 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 subconsultants through our consulting agreements?

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 terms to be passed through to your subconsultant. Or, a subconsultant may need to provide information that a consultant is relying on and may need to meet minimum insurance requirements.

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

An employment solicitor can help employers and workers understand their legal rights and obligations.

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

If you would like our team of contract lawyers to provide training, templates, contract manuals or other tools to manage consultancy agreement reviews, contact us today.

Our consultancy agreement manuals provide a guideline for 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 risks

We can also prepare template consultancy agreements, fee proposals, joint venture agreements, non disclosure agreements, variation forms and many other templates.

Hire one of our consultancy contract lawyers and 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 consulting contracts need to be reviewed by an experienced lawyer?

Professional consulting contracts need to be reviewed, negotiated and prepared by an experienced consultancy agreement lawyer. There are several reasons for this, including that:

  • the effectiveness of your professional indemnity policy may rely on the terms of your consultancy contract
  • professional consulting agreements can range from fair to very unfair and an experienced lawyer will understand what terms are appropriate
  • legal and commercial risk is allocated through the terms of the contract
  • your business may unintentionally give up important legal rights
  • consultancy agreements are often prepared by the client (and do not favour the consultant)

By engaging Prosper Law to provide you with legal advice regarding your consultancy agreement, you will be managing risk and protecting your business.

It is also important to be aware of any issues that may come up when you are providing services. Our team of consultancy contract lawyers have extensive experience when it comes to consultancy contracts and how to manage problems.
