If you are a business owner, you might have to hire outside experts to help with specific projects from time to time. These experts or consultants don't have the same status as your employees.
Thus, it would be best to have a clear understanding of what is expected in the working relationship. That is why it makes sense to create a Consultant Agreement protecting both you and the consultant hired to avoid misunderstandings.
A Consultant Agreement documents all consultants, essentially those working as independent contractors, should understand and utilize. There are many benefits to using this document if you're a consultant, of which the most essential is security.
Freelancers might be tempted to skip the Consultant Agreement, but it is not in their best interest to do so.
Depending on your state, a Consultant Agreement may also be known as:
A Consultant Agreement applies to various consultant-client relationships. For example, if a newspaper hires a consulting journalist to write an article or a small business owner hires a web designer. A couple hires a wedding photographer for their wedding or a performer and their client.
