Independent Contractor Agreements

Independent contractor agreements are essential for businesses seeking the flexibility of working with contractors while maintaining legal clarity and protection. These agreements define the relationship between your business and the independent contractor, outlining key terms such as scope of work, compensation, confidentiality, and intellectual property rights. By having a well-drafted independent contractor agreement in place, you can mitigate legal risks, protect your business, and tap into specialized talent as needed.
