An employment agreement is a contract between an employer and an employee, identifying the rules, right and obligations of both parties. An employment agreement may include terms such as the duration of the agreement, the responsibilities of the parties, salary, bonuses, benefits, protections for confidential information, and rules governing reviews and termination.
An employee handbook is an important tool for any business that helps guide employer and employee actions in the workplace. The handbook is a compilation of policies, procedures, attendance and behavioral expectations, and working conditions. The handbook is also an important source of information concerning procedures for handling complaints of discrimination, retaliation, and harassment.
Employee handbooks should be periodically reviewed to ensure that the policies and procedures therein continue to comply with the ever-changing landscape of employment law.
An independent contractor agreement is a binding contract between a business (or individual) and an independent contractor that identifies the rights and obligations of both parties. It denotes the rules underlying the relationship, including special obligations undertaken by either party. Typically, an independent contractor agreement will also include terms and conditions of the relationship in regard to compensation, responsibilities, protections for confidential information, the duration of the agreement, and rules for termination of the agreement.
A non-compete agreement is a contract typically signed by an employee, independent contractor, or consultant that prevents the signing party from competing with an employer after the working relationship has ended. Competition generally means working in similar markets or professions as the employer, including selling similar goods or services. Non-compete agreements specify the length of time and geographic area within which the restrictions are valid.
An asset purchase agreement is a contract (often between businesses or between an individual and a business) that identifies the terms and conditions of the sale and purchase of assets. It enables the parties to agree upon which assets the purchaser will be buying and which liabilities the purchaser will assume or avoid.
A contract is an agreement (written or oral) that creates legally enforceable mutual obligations between two or more parties. A contract contains a promise by one party to do something—or to provide something in return—for a benefit from the other party. A contract typically includes specific terms and conditions of the agreement and identifies consequences for failing to perform as promised.
A deed of trust is a written agreement between a lender and a borrower. It gives a third party control over real property (land or buildings) used to secure a loan. The third party will serve as a trustee over that property until the borrower pays off the debt.
A loan agreement is a contract that outlines the terms of a loan, including any collateral offered as security for the loan. A loan agreement also serves as evidence that the money, goods or services provided by the lender were not meant as a gift to the borrower. The agreement is intended to protect the parties involved and secure repayment of the loan.
A promissory note is a financial document that contains a written promise by one party to pay another party a definite sum of money in the future—typically the repayment of a loan. The note contains the terms pertaining to the indebtedness, including the principal amount of the debt, the interest rate, and the maturity date.
An operating agreement is an important document that outlines a limited liability company’s internal rules and regulations. It helps the LLC’s owners (members) and managers (if any) understand how the business should operate. An operating agreement also helps prevent misunderstandings between members and/or managers.
Corporate bylaws are internal rules that outline the conduct and operations of a corporation. They are a critical consideration when starting and maintaining a corporation. Bylaws help create the corporation’s structure and provide guiding information to shareholders and executives in regard to meetings, duties of officers, elections of directors and officers, and other routine conduct.
Nonprofit corporate bylaws are internal rules of conduct for a nonprofit corporation or other nonprofit organization. They create a nonprofit’s structure and act as a supplement to the rules and regulations defined by a state’s corporations code, helping ensure the entity is in compliance with nonprofit-specific rules and regulations. Nonprofit bylaws provide guiding information to directors and officers, including information about meetings, elections, filling vacancies, duties of officers, and other routine conduct.
A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is a legal contract that creates confidentiality between parties. An NDA’s parties agree that confidential, proprietary and sensitive information they have shared with each other will not be made available to third parties. NDAs are often signed by two or more negotiating business, or between employers and their employees or independent contractors.
Taking steps toward creating an end-of-life plan can be difficult, but it’s never too early to start organizing your personal and business assets. Let us smooth out your estate details so you can spend your energy elsewhere.
An advanced health care directive is a written document that details a personʼs wishes and desires regarding medical treatment in circumstances where they can no longer express informed consent. Through the document, a person is able to appoint someone as their proxy (representative) to make health care decisions if they become too ill, are in a coma, or are certain to die. These decisions can include whether to consent to, refuse, or maintain extraordinary life-support.
A power of attorney is a written document that gives an elected person the power to act on behalf of the grantor. A “general power of attorney” covers all real property and financial matters, while a “special power of attorney” grants powers limited to a specific matter, like managing an investment portfolio or selling real property (buildings and land). A power of attorney may become effective immediately, upon the grantorʼs incapacity, or upon the happening of some other future event.
A trust is an estate planning tool that establishes a fiduciary relationship between three parties: the trustor (the person or entity that creates the trust), the trustee (the person or entity that holds title to property in the interim), and the beneficiary (the future recipient of the property). Trusts are legal entities created to provide legal protection for a trustorʼs assets.
A will is a written, legal document expressing a deceased personʼs final wishes regarding the disposition of their real and personal property. If a person dies without a will, those wishes may not be carried out. A will often names guardians of minor children and bequeaths property, cash, and other assets to family, friends, or charities. A will becomes effective only after oneʼs death.
End of life plans (estate plans) typically include a trust, a will, one or more powers of attorney, an advanced health care directive, and other documents. For most people, it is beneficial to have all of those documents in place, since each serves a different purpose. When drafted together, the collection of documents provides a convenient and comprehensive plan for protecting your assets and ensuring their proper disposition upon your death.
Rental property and legal paperwork go hand-in-hand. Making sure your rental documents are legally compliant is a must whether you’re a renter, owner, or manager.
A lease agreement is a written document through which the owner of property (usually real estate or a vehicle) allows another to use the property under specific terms and conditions. Those terms and conditions usually include a specified period of time for which the property will be leased and a specific, periodic sum of money that must be paid in order to lease the property. Most often, a lease agreement is a contract between a landlord/owner and a tenant that identifies how much money will be paid monthly for rent, and for how long.
A sublease is the re-renting of leased property. A sublease typically involves an existing tenant (lessee) leasing all or a portion of the leased premises to a third party. The sublease may last for all or a portion of the existing tenantʼs remaining lease term.

A commercial construction contract is a legal agreement, typically between a property owner and a general contractor, that identifies what services a contractor will provide on a commercial construction project. In addition to defining the services, the contract details the timeline for completion of those services, who will participate in which aspects of the construction process, costs of labor and material, procedures and costs for changing the scope of work, how the parties will communicate, and how any disputes will be resolved.
A residential construction contract is a legal agreement, typically between a property owner and a general contractor, that identifies what services a contractor will provide on a residential construction project.

The subcontract defines the services to be provided by the subcontractor, including the timeline for the provision of goods or services, costs of labor and material, procedures and costs for changing the scope of the subcontractorʼs work, how the parties will communicate, and how any disputes will be resolved.

A deed is a written, signed, legal document that transfers title (ownership) or an interest in real property or assets to another person or entity. There are three basic types of deeds: general warranty deed, special warranty deed, and quitclaim deed. Each type of deed provides different guarantees or levels of protection to the person receiving the property.
A commercial purchase and sale agreement is a contract entered into upon mutual acceptance of an offer for the sale of commercial real property.
