Business Growth Tools for Tech Companies: Free Sample Legal Contracts

There’s a reason skeptics are fond of the saying, “Get it in writing.” Contracts and other written agreements form the cornerstone the U.S. legal system, as any small-business owner quickly discovers. Contracts let you protect your ideas, limit your legal liability, and set expectations for employees and clients.

In other words, contracts are an essential part of doing business. But they can also be expensive, especially for tech companies. Why? Because to have a contract that meets legal muster, you’ve got to hire a lawyer. And unless your lawyer is also very tech savvy, he or she will have to spend many (billable) hours getting to know the technology behind your work so the contract makes sense and includes adequate provisions to protect you.

At TechInsurance, we know that most business owners simply don’t have the resources to fund the contracts they need – but not having them can open them to a tremendous amount of liability. So we decided to help you manage your risk without draining your bank account.
