Consulting Agreements

Consulting agreements form the foundation of any professional consulting relationship. They provide a roadmap for a successful collaboration, outlining the rights, obligations, and expectations of both parties involved. With a well-drafted consulting agreement, you can safeguard your business's interests, mitigate risks, and prevent potential disputes.


At Caruso Law, attorney Venus Caruso has extensive experience with preparing, reviewing for legal feedback and advice, redlining and revising, as well as negotiating terms to help you reach mutually agreeable terms and close the deal.  She works closely with her clients to tailor each agreement to their specific needs, addressing key considerations such as:

  • Scope of Work: Venus meticulously defines the scope of work, ensuring clarity and avoiding misunderstandings. By clearly outlining the services to be provided, project timelines, and deliverables, realistic expectations are set for all parties involved.​

  • Compensation and Payment Terms: Venus ensures that your consulting agreement accurately reflects the agreed-upon compensation structure and payment terms. She protects your financial interests by including provisions for fee structures, reimbursement of expenses, and detailed payment schedules.

  • Intellectual Property Rights: Intellectual property is often a valuable asset in consulting engagements. Venus helps you safeguard your intellectual property by carefully drafting provisions that define ownership, usage rights, and confidentiality measures, providing the necessary protection for your creations.

  • Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure: Venus understands the importance of preserving your sensitive information. She creates robust confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions in your consulting agreements, ensuring that confidential information remains confidential and is not disclosed to unauthorized parties.

  • Termination and Dispute Resolution: In the event that a consulting engagement doesn't go as planned, having termination and dispute resolution provisions in place can help you navigate a smooth exit strategy. Venus is skilled in crafting these provisions to protect your interests, clearly defining termination grounds, notice periods, and potential remedies to minimize disruption and protect your business.

  • Compliance with Applicable Laws: Venus ensures that your consulting agreements comply with applicable laws and regulations, providing you with peace of mind and reducing the risk of costly legal consequences.
