A little story from a recent TLP customer about why your business needs a contract!
The Legal Paige team cares for the health of your business. We want you to have a solid contract that provides protection against the "what ifs" and gives you peace of mind.
TLP believes the value of our contract templates are shown through our customers' stories. For instance, Andy recently reached out to us regarding a sticky situation she was involved in and was looking for a contract to prevent it from reoccurring. Andy was struggling with a client who had not kept up with payments for ongoing business coaching services. Her client was late on paying thousands of dollars worth of services that were rendered.
Andy, being the kind person she is, believed in her client and assumed she would eventually submit payment. After several invoice reminders, the client still had an unpaid balance and always came up with a different excuse for why she couldn't pay.
Eventually, the client began claiming that her business was failing because of the coaching services Andy provided. However, all of her roles and responsibilities Andy said she would deliver, had been delivered. There were also several clients who gave great feedback on her coaching. So what was Andy to do?
Customer experiences like Andy’s happen often and are prime examples of WHY implementing a contract is truly worth it. Contracts are amazing at helping you lay out everything in terms of what parties involved need to do.
For example: What are the client’s responsibilities? What are their payment terms? When are payments due? Is there a retainer? When will late fees come into effect, etc.?
In Andy's case, she didn't have a contract in place stating the client's responsibilities or payment terms. This makes it difficult to enforce late payments.
If this matter were taken to court, Andy can try using evidence like texts or emails but she doesn't have a signed contract outlining client expectations to give a judge. Therefore, creating a hollow argument against her client.
Don't be like Andy.
The TLP team pours our heart, soul, and expertise into every template we put out so that you are paid on time, protected from liability, and can enforce your business policies
Make a better business decision through TLP Contracts!
Getting a quality contract through a reputable source is crucial for you to be successful in business!
You can find just about anything on Google from funny cat videos, to diagnoses on Web MD, but should you be finding your contracts for free on Google?
The answer is unequivocal no, NO!
A bad contract can cost you thousands of dollars in legal fees and court battles, and Google is full of bad contracts.
The problem with finding a contract for free on Google or through your industry friend is that you don't know how old it is, who wrote it, or which laws it was based on. And the fact that the contract is free… tells you the value of the contract is very low.
When you present a TLP contract to your clients you will feel confident knowing it was written by licensed attorneys who understand small business owners and creatives.
What do you get with TLP Contracts?
1. Written by Licensed Attorneys
This should be an obvious one but so many companies are putting out contracts that are NOT written by licensed lawyers. Doing this is a major no-noin the legal world (it’s illegal and called the “unauthorized practice of the law”) and you should avoid using a contract that was not written by an attorney.
