Beate Ruuck, online marketing consultant and website designer, is one of our longstanding clients and referral partners. Beate’s business, Mad Hat Media, has grown from being a one-woman operation to having three part-time employees besides Beate. We have enjoyed being Beate’s legal advisers as her business has grown. We prepared a standard client agreement and subcontracting agreement for her. To do these things well, we consulted with Beate carefully about how she engages with clients and the responsibilities she expects her subcontractors to fulfil. Over the period since we first drafted those documents, they have been tested by questions received from clients and contractors, and we are pleased that the documents are robust and protect our client. We have also worked with Beate to improve the documents. Our new clients profit from the experience we gain from working with business owners like Beate over a period of years, refining their commercial agreements.
