You're an entrepreneur and business owner (but probably not a lawyer), so it can be both surprising and intimidating when you start digging in to research all the legally binding documentation you'll need to make sure your company is covered. Sooner or later, you'll probably need to enact a variety of contracts that detail employment terms, protect your ideas when you hire outside freelancers or outline partnership agreements (if you start your company with a partner).
There are countless situations like these in which you'll be called upon to produce a contract, but it can quickly get expensive to enlist a lawyer to draft each one of these frequently used documents. Of course, there are several websites that have free generic forms available, but it's hard to know whether these sources are trustworthy, or if they've even been developed by a lawyer.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this common problem: Incfile has compiled a Contract Library that has over 25 documents to help you with the most common situations you'll encounter. For just $150, our Silver and Gold package clients get unlimited access to these contracts, saving you from legal fees since they're pre-made and ready to use. If you chose our amazing Platinum Package, you already have access to all of these professional documents at no additional fee. Note that the Contract Library is not available to the public, and the option to purchase is available when you're placing your Incfile order.
Here's another great option for you to consider: for a one-time flat fee of $199, you can work directly (one-on-one) with a network attorney to customize the protection you may need for your unique situation. Most lawyers charge hundreds of dollars an hour, so you'll quickly discover what an advantage this service will be.
Our Incfile Contract Library will also give your company peace of mind, since you won't have to rely on free printable contracts posted by disreputable websites. A bad contract can cost you thousands of dollars in settlement fees, or quite possibly even sink your business if it doesn't protect you adequately. Instead, for a small expense, you can talk to a lawyer who has your best interests in mind...and skip the uncertainty of wondering if you signed an airtight contract that will hold up over time.
After much research and professional input, we have compiled a list of the most commonly requested and useful contracts that business owners will need access to.
