A consultancy agreement is an agreement between a company (usually referred to as the “principal”) and a service entity (usually referred to as the “consultant”). The consultant agrees to provide a service to the principal for a fee. The consultant may agree to provide a one-off service for a set fee or continuing services to the principal for a predetermined length of time for a fee.

About this free document

LegalVision’s LVDox™ Free Consultancy Agreement sets out:

  • the terms of the consultant relationship;
  • the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the consultant and principal; and
  • business processes such as payment, fees and invoicing.

The LVDox™ Free Consultancy Agreement is a very basic consultancy agreement.

If your consultancy relationship is more complex, then it’s important that you have a lawyer assist you to draft the following clauses:

  • an unpaid invoices collection clause;
  • a confidentiality clause;
  • the ability for the consultant to be paid on commission;
  • a subcontracting clause allowing the Principal to restrict the ability of the Consultant to subcontract the services;
  • a sophisticated dispute resolution clause;
  • a sophisticated workplace health and safety clause;
  • a non-compete clause;
  • a provision to protect your intellectual property and to allow the consultant to use it if required;
  • additional provisions in related to the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the consultant and principal, particularly if an agreement has been reached on particular issues.
