Business Contracts Legal Questions and Answers

Business Contracts

Business Purchase Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 17, 2023

Are digital assets covered in a business purchase agreement?

I am in the process of purchasing an online business and I am trying to understand what is included in the business purchase agreement. I am particularly interested in understanding whether digital assets such as website domains, content, and software licenses are covered in the agreement. I am hoping to get a better understanding of what is included in the agreement so I can ensure that all assets of the business are protected.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 30, 2023

A North Carolina business purchase agreement will typically identify the assets of the business being purchased. This includes the business' intellectual property, proprietary interests, and digital assets. However, a buyer should not enter into a business purchase agreement if the terms of the agreement are not clear, including terms related to the assets are included in and/or excluded from the deal. For assistance with navigating a North Carolina business purchase agreement, you might contact a North Carolina corporate attorney. Good luck!

Contract Agreement

Georgia

Asked on Sep 19, 2021

Need to draft a personal contract

I need help to prepare a personal contract between myself and Ex-partner. We were never married before. I want to offer her compensations for her losses due to the end of our relationship and need help to write the terms and conditions and discuss legal issues.

Donya G.

Answered Oct 5, 2021

OK. You need to decide what you would like the terms to be and discuss them with her. A contract is always best and easier to get done when both parties are in agreement with the terms and what the document should say. Once you have done that, then you should seek to engage with an attorney to assist you with the actual document and the language. If you you would to engage my services where I would draft your agreement and advise you, you can contact me on the contracts counsel website and I would be happy to assist.

Non-disclosure And Confidentiality Agreement

California

Asked on Sep 21, 2023

Business contract confidentiality clause?

I am a business owner in the process of signing a contract with a new vendor. We have agreed on the terms of the contract, but I am concerned about the confidentiality clause. I need to ensure that the vendor is not able to share the details of the contract with other businesses or individuals that could potentially be in competition with us. I want to know what can be done to ensure that the confidentiality clause of the contract is enforced.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 31, 2023

A business might use a non-disclosure agreement (sometimes called an "NDA," a "Confidential Disclosure Agreement," or a "CDA") to prevent others from disclosing its confidential information. Confidential information includes the business' trade secrets, as well as other proprietary information that does not constitute trade secrets. Generally, there are two main types of non-disclosure agreements. In a unilateral non-disclosure agreement, one party agrees not to disclose the other party's confidential information. In a mutual non-disclosure agreement, both parties agree not to disclose each other's confidential information. It is usually best to execute a non-disclosure agreement prior to the disclosure of confidential information. Disclosed information cannot be un-disclosed. Also, a party that has already received confidential information without restrictions might have little to no incentive to sign a non-disclosure agreement after the fact. For advice on or assistance with a non-disclosure agreement, speak with a knowledgeable business contract attorney. Good luck!

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 11, 2023

Can I set performance metrics in the contractor agreement?

I am a small business owner who recently hired an independent contractor to help with some of my projects. I want to ensure that the contractor is held accountable for their work, so I am looking to set performance metrics in the contractor agreement. I am hoping to find out the legalities of doing so and what kind of metrics are legally allowed to be included in the agreement.

N'kia N.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

A business that hires an independent contractor should be careful not to confuse an independent contractor relationship with an employment relationship. Treating an independent contractor like an employee can result in the law ultimately determining that the contractor is actually a "misclassified" employee. In North Carolina, "performance metrics" typically apply to employees, not independent contractors. This is because the "independent" in "independent contractor" means that the hiring party does not "control" (manage, monitor, supervise, etc.) the contractor like it would an employee. The hiring party is entitled to hold the contractor accountable for the results that it hires the contractor to achieve. However, the independent contractor is entitled to determine the manner, means, and methods of achieving the desired results. With that all being said, it is important for the parties to an independent contractor relationship to have clear expectations. An independent contractor agreement should outline the essential terms and conditions of the engagement. These might include such terms as definitions of the deliverables, deadlines for the deliverables, remedies for the independent contractor's failure to produce the deliverables by the agreed-upon deadlines, and special considerations. A knowledgeable North Carolina attorney can advise on the legalities of the proposed terms and conditions of an independent contractor relationship that is to be governed by North Carolina law.

Consulting Agreement

Washington

Asked on Nov 4, 2023

Are consulting agreements legally binding?

I am a consultant looking to enter into a consulting agreement with a client. I am wondering if consulting agreements are legally binding and what the implications of that would be for both parties. I want to ensure that I am protected and that my client is held accountable for any obligations they have agreed to.

Merry A.

Answered Dec 5, 2023

In theory, all consulting (and other written agreements) are legally binding/enforceable, but in practice, it depends entirely on how an agreement is written and the understanding of the parties when they form an agreement. If you will be working on many projects, with many clients, I urge you to get assistance from an attorney in reviewing/writing any boilerplate you end up using, including choosing certain paragraphs that may change from contract to contract.

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.
