A consultant non-compete agreement is used to prevent a hired consultant from directly competing with a client’s business. The client will often demand that this agreement be signed prior to hiring the individual to ensure that the consulting party won’t use the information that they’ve gained through their time with the business to benefit themselves or the client’s competition. The non-compete agreement also contains a non-solicitation clause that prevents the consultant from attempting to obtain the services of the client’s employees or other independent contractors. The clause also prevents the solicitation of the client’s costumers. With the agreement signed, the hiring party can rest assured knowing that their business will not be negatively affected by working with a consultant.
Consultant Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) – For any consultant that is hired that is to withhold revealing any information about the client or their business affairs.
