Business contract for temporary projects?

I am a freelancer looking to take on temporary projects. I am currently in the process of creating a business contract for these projects, but I am unsure of what to include in the contract or what rights and responsibilities I should include for both parties. I would like to understand the legal implications of such a contract and ensure that I am adequately protected.

You should have a simple template that can be used for multiple projects. The key terms to include are: - Contract period - Your specific responsibilities and deliverables - Fees and payment terms - Who owns the work - Non-disclosure clauses - Termination rights (for both parties) if things don't go well - Indemnification (i.e. if something goes wrong, who is responsible for what) This can be a relatively simple contract that can be revised quickly and for multiple clients. One thing to note is that companies will typically prefer to use their own vendor contracts, so you might end up having to review and use their contract instead of yours.
