What Are Third-Party Agreements?
When drafting and negotiating contracts for employees, independent contractors, software developers, or the like, it’s important to keep in mind that internal theft of trade secrets, confidential information, and a company’s intellectual property (IP) are huge and unsuspected problems for many startups and businesses. The best way to protect yourself from these threats is strong and protective language in your third-party agreements to deter bad actors from engaging in this behavior.
We are capable of developing and negotiating employment contracts, software development agreements, independent contractor agreements, outsourcing contracts, and other third-party agreements that protect the interests of our clients. These contracts often contain terms outlining rights & obligations, the scope of work, payment terms, IP ownership, and more. Having a properly drafted third-party contract at your disposal is a great tool for avoiding future disputes.
Unfortunately, many businesses don’t have the capability or foresight to devote resources toward protecting themselves from employees or outsourced workers. These third-party contracts might differ greatly depending on the business involved. It’s important to hire a lawyer that can create an agreement based on your needs.
