Getting Paid for Consulting

Jonathan J. Sweet, Esq., Law Offices of Jonathan J. Sweet

Tuesday, Apr 19, 2011 - 7:00 pm


Jonathan J. Sweet, a Los Gatos attorney, reviews contract language and clauses for your consulting agreements and those you are asked to sign. He will discuss applicable California law and factual circumstances of which you should be aware to help ensure that you get paid when you work as a consultant.

No one likes working and not getting paid. If you carefully draft your consulting agreements, as well as carefully review any contracts you are asked to sign and understand what you are signing, you will dramatically increase the likelihood of getting paid.

Avoiding litigation is crucial to preserving business relationships and to ensuring that you have the time to perform your work and enjoy your leisure time. This is obviously preferable to paying attorneys’ fees and spending personal time on a lawsuit.

If a lawsuit is unavoidable, resolution by mediation or arbitration may reduce the cost of the dispute and increase the likelihood of preserving relationships.

Attendees are invited to actively participate in what should be a helpful and enjoyable meeting. Your questions and thoughts are most welcome.
