Business owners seeking free legal advice on contract matters may find help from industry trade associations, explains FindLaw. Trade associations often maintain a staff of legal experts, and members have access to all sorts of free legal information via newsletters and websites. Although, a membership fee is usually required, trade associations are a source of low-cost legal information through publications and training. Free legal information is also available at the website of the Small Business Administration. In addition, business owners can check with their local Small Business Development Center about receiving free counseling from business experts.
Businesses often need to create various service contracts that put into writing specific services the business is providing to customers. Service contracts usually include dates, payment amounts and exact descriptions of the work involved, notes RocketLawyer. Business owners can also create contracts for the exchange of material goods, franchise deals, hiring an independent contractor and business partnerships. Contracts include rules that all parties agree upon and often include a termination clause.
