Legal contracts often come in many different lengths and forms, and are typically filled with terms and provisions that are very difficult to understand. Often times, many people sign these contracts without fully interpreting what they’re bargaining for, which can end up costing them a lot of their time and money down the road.
This is why it’s very important to have your agreements reviewed by attorneys who can sift through all of the necessary terms and draft provisions that match your specific needs and protect your business’s interests at a nominal cost for peace of mind.
To get you started, you can easily post a job for free and compare custom quotes from several attorneys who can best help you.

Costs will vary depending on the type and length of the contract, attorney rates, and desired turnaround time.

Regardless, your agreement needs are unique, which is why you should request custom proposals from several attorneys on UpCounsel and choose the one best for your needs and budget.
What types of agreements should I be worried about as a small business owner?
A small business owner needs to think about a variety of agreements when it comes to the company. If the company has already been formed, you are probably looking to hire employees, in which case you’ll need employment agreements and employee handbooks. Confidentiality Agreements and documents having to do with protecting your intellectual property may be necessary as well.
Without knowing what stage of your business you are at, it can be hard to tell what agreements you may need. Thats why it would be best to speak with a qualified UpCounsel attorney who can lead you in the right direction.
I see many websites that have free legal documents. Do I still need an attorney to take a look at one I intend to use?
Yes, although many free legal documents are well-drafted, you would need to have them proofread by an attorney who can customize them to your specific needs. Many of the legal documents that you see online have very general provisions and will not protect you in certain circumstances that may only pertain to your situation. By discussing with your attorney your exact needs, he or she will be able to draft or review the contract to fit your personal needs.
Having hundreds of contract attorneys with many years of experience ready to help you on-demand through UpCounsel, your business can be confident that your legal agreements are protecting you to the fullest. From independent contractor agreements and letters of intent, to convertible notes, indemnity agreements, and much more - we’ve got you covered.
