Our specialist team of construction law solicitors have extensive experience advising on the complexities of service agreements. A Service Agreement, also known as a Service Contract or Contract for Services, is a written agreement between a service provider and customer that outlines the terms of a particular service between the two parties.
Service Agreements usually address the following issues:
- The terms of the agreement
- Details of the parties to the agreement
- The nature of the service being offered
- The size of the renumeration to the service provider
Additionally, Service Agreements may also provide details on:
- Dispute resolution between parties
- How confidential information is to be treated upon the Service Provider’s termination
- Whether there are limitations on the Service Provider’s ability to compete with the Customer’s business upon the Service Provider’s termination
Our solicitors have an in depth understanding of a wide range of business sectors and the challenges they face including Service Agreements. We recognise the risks and challenges that are confronted in the construction industry and our dedicated construction and engineering team provides cost-effective and tailored legal solutions.
