Distribution Agreement

Illinois

Asked on Sep 8, 2021

My manufacturer is in China, do you write contract agreements for the sales of my products?

I have a patent pending on my product. I have one product being made into a sample now with a China manufacturer. They are also developing another new product to work along with the initial product. I need an attorney to write up a contract license agreement for the sales and distribution of my products. I am in the process of developing a trademark to put all my products under.

Octavia P.

Answered Sep 21, 2021

You are on the right track since a well-drafted distribution/licensing agreement(s) is absolutely essential to protect an inventor’s IP rights when outsourcing the manufacturing of proprietary products. You can post your question, as a project, on this platform to receive and compare multiple proposals from licensed attorneys who are registered and verified. Once you receive a response(s) you will be able to correspond through the platform or request a call to help with your decision to hire a particular attorney for the project. Best of luck!

Cease and Desist

Illinois

Asked on Jan 14, 2022

I am looking for an attorney to write a Cease of Desist letter.

I had a verbal agreement with the video editor to edit a documentary. Per the video editor, the agreement was that he would edit the videos and complete the documentary, and if I liked it, I would pay him, and if I didn't like it, I didn't have to pay him. I gave him the script for an hour-long video. He completed a two hours video; he did not use the script; he put whatever he wanted, and now he wants me to pay him triple the amount of money we agreed. Now he is threatening me if I don't pay him; he will publish all the videos online and put on all social media that I did not pay him. I agreed to pay him the amount previously discussed, never said I wasn't going to pay him.

Service Provider Agreement

Virginia

Asked on Dec 12, 2021

What contracts do I need for my business?

Hello, My name is Brian Vargas and I’m the CEO & Founder of chorrz.com - an e-commerce platform website that will provide apartment cleaning services through leveraging partnerships with local cleaning providers. My company CHORRZ would operate as follows - I would be partnering with local cleaning providers - (i.e., Marie’s Cleaning Service) who already have their own insurance and this entity would be providing the clean upon being booked by the apartment resident through my platform, chorrz.com. These cleaning providers would effectively be independent contractors and not my employees as CHORRZ is only the platform for seeing local cleaners to book a clean from. My question relates to which type of contract or agreement is suitable for this style of business? A Service Partnership Agreement or maybe an Independent Contractor Agreement? I’ll be partnering with cleaning businesses run by 1 person (the owner) and cleaning companies with multiple cleaners employed. Kind regards, Brian

Answered Dec 14, 2021

I suggest you have a consultation with an attorney. A service agreement or independent contractor contract may work depending on the circumstances. Best of luck with your new venture.

Independent Contractor Agreement

Texas

Asked on Nov 13, 2023

Are electronic signatures valid on contractor agreements?

I am an independent contractor and I was recently asked to sign an agreement using an electronic signature. I am concerned about the validity of this agreement and want to make sure that I am protected under the law if I sign it. I am looking for advice from a lawyer to understand if electronic signatures are legally valid on independent contractor agreements.

YES. How is that for a simple answer? Sadly - simple answers are rare with most lawyers. Not me. Check out my website where I offer fixed fee services on 1099 Contractor Agreement review or templates. www.fixedfeelawfirm.com.

Business Contract

Tennessee

Asked on Dec 5, 2021

Do I need a user agreement for my business?

I’ve recently started my business which is a web-based sentimental message delivery company. Essentially my business allows people to upload written, Audio, and video files to my website (data warehouse is managed through Amazon Web Services), for these messages to be delivered to their intended recipients at a later date in the future or after they pass away. I intended to manage the post-life part by asking the customers to submit their DOB, full name, and most recent address, as we plan to run regular scans against the SSA’s death master. I realize that this is personal information, that may fall under HIPAA penalties. My Amazon expert recommended a user agreement so I’ve been reading up on them, and I just want to confirm this is the appropriate approach. Please advise and let me know what the rate for this user agreement would be through your services. My website is below. Here’s the website: O1morething.com

Answered Dec 21, 2021

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
