Today’s post is all about key Legal Documents for Online Entrepreneurs.
Which documents do you need to legally cover yourself before operating a website and running an online business? That’s exactly what I was asking myself when I set up my first ecommerce store www.PrivateSales.hk
Luckily, our friends at Dragon Law have helped us with the following information. Read Legal Documents for Online Entrepreneurs, Made Simple, below:
Depending on your business model, you’ll probably need some or all of the following documents:
- Terms and Conditions
- Trademark Assignment
- Website Design and Development Agreement
- Website Advertising Agreement
- Employment Contract
- Confidentiality Agreement
- Founders’ Agreement
- Shareholders’ Agreement
- Supply of Services Agreement
Many startups, keen to cut costs (especially expensive hourly-rates from lawyers), skip over these at their own risk. Getting these legal documents sorted out at the beginning could save you a lot of heartache and larger costs later on.
The above isn’t a comprehensive list by any means. Your business will have unique risks, legal obligations, and potential liabilities.
And now for the good news:
Most of these legal documents for online entrepreneurs can be prepared without the help of an expensive lawyer. Dragon Law’s new online service can walk you through the preparation of your legal documents starting at HK$1,000/month.
I used their free service to create a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) recently, and was able to download a customised professional legal NDA within 10 minutes. I was very impressed!
It turns out legal protection doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg after all.
