Whether you need to prepare an agreement or have one reviewed, an experienced Legal Hero lawyer can help you get the best terms possible and understand what you’re getting into before you sign on the dotted line.
Also known as non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, confidentiality agreements are contracts in which one party provides confidential information to another party in return for a promise to maintain the confidentiality of that information.
Some situations in which confidentiality agreements are common include:
- when hiring a new employee
- when sharing information in connection with a potential merger, acquisition, or joint venture
- when providing plans or specifications to a supplier
- when sharing information with consultants
What are vendor agreements?
A vendor agreement is a contract between a company and a contractor, supplier, or service provider. If your company regularly enters into contracts with customers or service providers, many of which have similar terms, it is wise to have an experienced lawyer prepare a well thought out agreement that can be used repeatedly. Or, if you have a particularly important relationship or one with unique terms, an experienced lawyer can prepare a customized agreement or modify your existing form to make sure you’re protected.
