You know there are things your business should be doing differently. And you hear it everywhere…businesses being sued by customers, employees, contractors, photographers, musicians, partners, government agencies…the list goes on and on.
But what if there was a way to identify and minimize business problems, before they became legal problems?
It is tempting to look at customer contracts as an evil imposed by lawyers to control the rogue sales staff or customer. The reality is that most sales contracts and approval processes grow up over time, with little thought as to whether or not they support the customer relationship. Or, worse yet, they’ve been borrowed from your competitor or another industry. What if you could get the words right, and develop and implement efficient, repeatable process that supports your customer relationship while minimizing your risk?
Consultants, Contractors and Outsourcing
These relationships give your business incredible access to expertise, talent, skills and flexibility in staffing that is reflected on the bottom line. But what if you don’t own the work you are paying for? What if your contractor’s work results in an unhappy customer or a lawsuit?
Intellectual Property Rights
How do you know that the pictures you put on your website can be used by you? What do you do if your graphic designer claims ownership of your logo design? What should you be protecting and how? What designs, graphics, or catch-phrases can you use to increase revenue? What if you had a trusted resource to answer all these questions as they apply to your business? No more guessing whether what you read on the internet gave you the entire picture.
