July 29, 2023 My name is Diamond Simpson Roberts, ESQ, MSPH and I am convinced that I can be a value added asset to most any company. As the first in my family to graduate a four-year university, I graduated from Wayne State University Law School in 2000 but could not afford a bar prep course upon completion. After over 20 years, I sat for the July 2022 UBE, successfully passed and am currently licensed in three states! This is an example of my self-motivation, internal drive and passion. I offer over 28 years of diverse experience in healthcare, strategy, sales/marketing, legal/policy and business savvy. I have many years building, leveraging, and sustaining long term relations to drive revenue as an entrepreneur and for corporations. My analytical strengths provide me with an innate ability to think through tough situations/topics while viewing both vantage points (which is excellent for law and life). I have been appointed to serve on numerous committees due to my heightened ability to identify client issues and priorities and provide solutions based upon relevant products, services and needs. I have led teams with and without authority; specifically, I have managed teams for an Adult Foster Care Facility called Etonne Cares, during my post-graduate fellowship with the largest Catholic Healthcare System in the U.S. and during my two-year executive order appointment with the Federal Government (Presidential Management Fellowship). Most importantly, I am a collaborative team player who knows how to improvise, overcome and adapt! I offer numerous years of being a pharmaceutical trainer and being an adjunct using the online platform. I welcome the opportunity to continue in the interview so that I may further highlight the skills I can (and will) contribute to my success in the role.

Business Contract

Washington

Asked on Sep 24, 2023

Business contract with non-disclosure?

I am a small business owner looking to enter into a contract with another party. I am concerned about protecting my intellectual property and proprietary information that I will be sharing with the other party. Therefore, I am looking for advice on how to draft a non-disclosure agreement that will adequately protect my interests.

Merry A.

Answered Sep 26, 2023

Creating a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is a crucial step to protect your intellectual property and proprietary information when entering into a contract with another party. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to draft an NDA that will help safeguard your interests: Understand Your Needs: Clearly identify what specific information you want to protect. This could include trade secrets, business plans, customer lists, product designs, or any other sensitive information. Consult an Attorney: It's highly recommended to consult with an attorney who specializes in intellectual property or contract law. They can provide you with tailored advice and ensure your NDA complies with applicable laws in your jurisdiction. Basic NDA Structure: Title: Start with a clear title such as "Non-Disclosure Agreement" or "Confidentiality Agreement." Parties: Identify the parties involved, including your business and the other party. Recitals or Purpose: Include a brief statement explaining the purpose of the agreement, such as why the parties are entering into it. Definition of Confidential Information: Define what constitutes confidential information. Be as specific as possible to leave no room for ambiguity. Obligations of the Receiving Party: Clearly outline the receiving party's obligations, including: The duty to keep the information confidential. The prohibition on disclosing, sharing, or using the information for any purpose other than the specified one. The requirement to use reasonable care to protect the information. Duration of Confidentiality: Specify the duration for which the information must remain confidential. This could be for a set number of years or until a specific event occurs. Exclusions from Confidential Information: Clearly list any information that is not considered confidential. This could include information that was already public, independently developed by the receiving party, or disclosed with your written consent. Consequences of Breach: Describe the consequences of a breach of the NDA, such as injunctive relief, monetary damages, or both. Jurisdiction and Governing Law: Specify the jurisdiction where disputes will be resolved and the governing law that will apply. Miscellaneous Provisions: Include any other necessary clauses, such as dispute resolution methods, severability, and the entire agreement clause (which states that the NDA constitutes the entire agreement between the parties). Execution and Signatures: Provide spaces for the signatures of both parties, along with their printed names and dates. Review and Negotiation: Allow both parties to review and negotiate the terms. Be prepared for some back-and-forth discussions before reaching a final agreement. Legal Counsel Review: Before finalizing and signing the NDA, have your attorney review it to ensure it meets your specific needs and is legally enforceable. Remember that NDA templates are widely available, but they may not fully address your unique situation. It's essential to tailor the agreement to your specific needs and consult with legal professionals to ensure it adequately protects your intellectual property and proprietary information. Additionally, you should make sure that the other party understands the terms and willingly agrees to them before proceeding with any confidential discussions or transactions.

Independent Contractor Agreement

Washington

Asked on Nov 10, 2023

How detailed should the contractor agreement be?

I am a small business owner and I am looking to hire an independent contractor to work with my business. I want to ensure that the independent contractor agreement is thorough and legally binding, but I am not sure how detailed it needs to be. I want to make sure that all the relevant terms and conditions are included in the agreement to protect both parties.

Merry A.

Answered Dec 19, 2023

The agreement should be as detailed as possible, including details on how to dissolve the contract for various reasons. The scope of work should be included - if it's likely to change once in a while, include that as an addendum and note that it will change from time to time. Whenever it's going to change, execute a new addendum that both parties sign and date. It is your job to protect yourself, not the independent contractor - write the contract so that it strongly favors you; if the independent contractor wants to change it before signing, that is a question of negotiation.

Severance Agreement

California

Asked on Jul 21, 2023

Can a severance agreement be digital?

I recently accepted a voluntary severance package from my employer and have been asked to sign a severance agreement. I am curious if this agreement can be signed digitally, as I am not currently in the same city as my employer. I am looking for advice on the legalities of digital agreements and any potential risks associated with signing a severance agreement digitally.

Christina M.

Answered Jul 27, 2023

In 1999 the California Legislature enacted the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (the “UETA”), Civ. Code, §§ 1633.1 et seq., which provides that when a law requires a record to be in writing or requires a signature, an electronic record or signature satisfies the law. The law requires that any contract entered into between two parties may not be denied legal enforceability simply because of the use of an electronic signature. This has also be upheld in the employment law setting in some case law.

Consulting Agreement

Florida

Asked on Nov 4, 2023

How to terminate a consulting agreement?

I recently entered into a consulting agreement with a client. After a few months, I have realized that the terms of the agreement are not beneficial to me and I would like to terminate it. I would like to know what legal steps I need to take in order to terminate the agreement and what potential repercussions I may face.

Diane D.

Answered Dec 19, 2023

That's why you should read the agreement before you sign it and bring it to an attorney to review. Termination conditions of the contract should be in the contract. You have to follow those. If you don't like them, you can ask the other party if you can change them or if you can break the contract. If they don't agree, you're stuck and will be in breach if you try to cancel it. You can cancel it if the other party breaches it, but you have to have a valid reason or the courts will not grant it and you will end up with major legal bills.
