One of the most important aspects of running a business is securing the right contracts and agreements. A small business will generally find itself entering into numerous contracts and agreements of all kinds, with landlords, employees, vendors or suppliers, contractors or freelancers, business support services, and various other parties. These agreements should be carefully drafted and reviewed to ensure that these relationships serve to strengthen your business.

In this section you’ll find a wide variety of important legal documents, including easily customizable agreements and contracts that you can construct yourself, including a Memorandum of Understanding, a Non-Disclosure Agreement, a Waiver of Liability and much more.
