Case study: advising a start-up agency on its terms and conditions

  • Posted

Our corporate and commercial lawyers recently advised a Bristol start-up agency on developing terms of business it could use for its growing client base.

Developing standard terms of business for a fast-growing agency

The agency approached our team after it had secured its first few customers and work was starting to flow. The agency owners were keen to develop standard terms and conditions that were legally sound but flexible enough to be used for a variety of client and work types.

Or commercial lawyers worked with the agency to understand the services offered and the basis on which they offer them. We produced documents that allowed for client-specific needs, set the standard terms and allowed for ‘plug-ins’ for work-type specifics.

Understanding the business’ financial pressures

As commercial law experts, we are aware of the financial pressures that a start-up can be under. Legal fees for terms of business are ones that are often seen as ‘nice to have’ or put off.

Our lawyers can arrange for staged payments of our fees, making the process accessible for businesses, no matter the size.

It is important to us that businesses are clear on the terms they are doing business on. If our input and flexibility can help a start-up to become a success, then we are keen to play our part.

We were able to deliver the outcomes that the agency wanted to achieve and these documents now under-pin its client relationships.

Terms and conditions or terms of business allow each party to understand their rights and obligations, including payment terms and how to end the arrangement.

Whatever the nature of your business, properly drafted terms and conditions should form the basis of all your company’s commercial activities.
