Consultancy Agreement

A consultancy agreement is normally used to cover services by a consultant working from their own offices in contrast to contract labour (see employment) which may be situated in-house.

A consultancy agreement covers the provision of services to a company by a consultant and clearly sets out the terms upon which the consultant and the company agree provision of such services.

An agreement of this kind normally sets out the identities of the client company and the consultant, the definition of the engagement, the period where the agreement is in force, the duties and responsibilities of the consultant, fees, confidentiality, intellectual property, conditions of termination, and assignment conditions.

A consultancy agreement can be drafted for you by a lawyer, or you can use and adapt a standard agreement form such as supplied by a legal document supplier.
