Merrick Law Firm LLC represents independent contractors in a wide variety of professions and industries. We review draft agreements presented to our clients by their clients and customers and suggest beneficial changes or handle the negotiations directly. We also draft independent contractor agreements which our clients can use as a base model for all of their clients or customers.
In addition, we counsel our independent contractor clients regarding issues common to the independent contractor relationship including compensation and payment issues, scope of work issues, conflicts of interest, the use and ownership of proprietary information, and indemnification and liability issues. Much litigation in the independent contractor area can be avoided with planning and the use of a well-drafted independent contractor agreement.
If litigation cannot be avoided, we aggressively represent independent contractors in breach of contract and tort actions in the state and federal courts.
