Making a Financial Services Agreement
Financial advisors and their clients use Financial Services Agreements as a means of defining the scope of services to be performed. As a result of this agreement, all signers are more likely to have the same set of expectations in relation to fiscal matters. Unlike a blank template that you may download from another website, each Financial Services Contract that is built on Rocket Lawyer comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an attorney in our network can review the situation and take action if you don't receive payment or have another issue.
No matter what work you are hired to do as a financial advisor, you should always consider making a Financial Services Agreement. You might decide to make a Financial Services Agreement due to the fact that it grants the following list of benefits:
If you don't have a Financial Services Contract, you and the client may experience any of the following unwanted repercussions: unmet standards of quality, missed deadlines, unexpected changes, difficulty getting paid, and, unfortunately, little to no recourse if problems arise.
Specific details to add are:
As you probably expect, Financial Service Contracts made with Rocket Lawyer also include the typical legalese with regard to the non-employer relationship, indemnification, confidentiality, and finally, dispute resolution methods. As you build your contract, you also will have the ability to determine its state of jurisdiction. Further alterations are allowed, as necessary.
The fees associated with hiring a conventional legal provider could total anywhere from hundreds of dollars to thousands, depending on the level of complexity. If you wish to draft your free document using Rocket Lawyer, you can follow these directions. As with any legal document that you sign, you can also ask an On Call attorney to look it over.
In order to make your Financial Services Agreement truly legal, you will need to sign it, electronically using RocketSign®, or otherwise. Everyone should get copies of the fully executed agreement. With a Rocket Lawyer membership, you also will be able to print, make a copy, and save it as a Word or PDF document as necessary.
Getting a legal professional to review your agreement can take longer than you'd expect if you try to do it on your own. An alternate approach might be via Rocket Lawyer attorney services. Rocket Lawyer Premium members have the ability to request a document review from an attorney with experience in business or ask additional questions. As a business owner, you can work confidently knowing that Rocket Lawyer is here to support you.
