Handshake transactions may still work for some people, but in the absence of a strong advisory agreement signed by both parties, you and your business will put you at risk. The agreement establishes a legal relationship between the consultant and the service provider. Sometimes clients decide they want to terminate a consulting contract in the middle of a project. Other times, you might be the one who wants to be free of bail. Without the signatures of all parties involved, you cannot have a formal advisory contract. Be sure to include name, company, signature and date. Other identifying information may also be included, but these are the essential things. The company reserves creative rights on all materials, data and similar items produced by the company under this agreement. All services and software used by the Company are at all times the exclusive property of the Company and under no circumstances does the Customer have any interest or right to ownership of these materials or software.
The customer recognizes that the company can use and modify existing materials for the benefit of the customer and that the customer has no rights to these materials. All this information must be recorded in your consulting contract. Finally, if you haven`t done so yet, be sure to download our model of advice agreements.

This standard consulting contract defines the legal relationship between a company that provides consulting services with another company in the province of British Columbia, but can be used anywhere. Feel free to adapt and use it to meet your contractual needs.
Don`t forget, though; It`s always a good idea to have a lawyer check a contract before signing it. This first component is very simple. The consultation agreement should first list all parties to the contract, including their official names and sites.
