After working so hard developing your company’s brand, image, logo, and trade secrets, you need to protect your business by drafting the right contracts and agreements to ensure its security.

There are many different types of agreements and contracts your business may need, depending on the nature of your business. However, one particular business contract that all small and mid-sized business owners should consider having a skilled Austin business attorney draft includes:

  • Employment-related contracts
  • General employment contract
  • Vendor contract
  • Independent contractor agreement
  • Consulting agreement
  • Sales representative agreement
  • Distributor agreement
  • Non-compete agreement
  • Non-disclosure agreement
  • Confidentiality agreement
  • Shareholder or stockholder agreement 
  • Employment separation agreement

Every company has employees, which is why it is important to have the right contracts in place. Regardless of how small of a business you run, how few employees you have, or if your company is family-run, employment-related contracts are one of the first steps in taking careful considerations to protecting your business.

Each business may have different types of employees, including full-time and/or part time employees, contract workers, consultants, and sales representatives, among others, so different types of employment contracts will be needed.

If you have worked hard to establish your business, then hiring the right employees to help you run or represent your company is crucial. This is why, when you are setting up a company, you should meet with a Texas small business lawyer for your contract drafting needs.

Employment contracts are critical. If you hire the wrong employee who distributes your business plan, sales methods, client lists, commercial secrets, and more to a competitor, then your company could be devastated. An employment-related business contract can help prevent this from happening in the first place.
