Most businesses today provide services—“hard” or “soft”—to their clients. The age of manufacturing tangible goods for distribution and sale has been eclipsed by clients who provide “hard” services like managing a physical plant or “soft” services like sales, management, engineering, or customer support. The contracting needs of service businesses are unlike those of companies that make something tangible.

Most businesses today provide services—“hard” or “soft”—to their clients. The age of manufacturing tangible goods for distribution and sale has been eclipsed by clients who provide “hard” services like managing a physical plant or “soft” services like sales, management, engineering, or customer support. The contracting needs of service businesses are unlike those of companies that make something tangible. There are subtle issues of defining the scope of an engagement—often the source of conflict in these contracts—records and reporting, quality assurance, indemnification, conflicts of interest, and more. If these major provisions of service agreements are not carefully drafted, they can lead to strife among parties, unnecessary costs, and a loss of value. This program provides you with a practical guide to drafting the major provisions of service agreements.

• Drafting service agreements for “hard” and “soft” services
• Defining the scope of services provided, processes for changing the scope, and relationship to fees
• Performance standards and timeliness of delivery of services
• Drafting fee structures
• Access to recordings, timely reporting, and quality assurance
• Ensuring ownership of key files, records, knowhow, customer lists, and trade secrets
• Issues related to subcontracting, designation of agents, and assignment of the contract
• Conflicts of interest, limitation of liability, and indemnification
