Hello, I own a company that sales heat transfers (t shirt decals) to souvenir stores across the USA. Recently, we found a factoring company who is willing to finance our client’s invoices after the client purchased merchandise from us. I would like to create a short document between us and our clients that remove us from being liable for the collection of payment and the extension of credit. My company will only be responsible for providing the designs and the physical decals, and the factoring company will be responsible for extending the credit and collecting the payment. The key is to remove us from being charged back from the factoring company in the case the clients does not pay their invoices. I have attached the agreement the financial company would like us to sign. I would like to ask you: 1. Review the document and advise me on any other terms I can to protect my company 2. Prepare the short legal document for my clients to sign so I remove myself and my company from being responsible for any future invoices. Goodluck, Dan

For a marketing website we are developing, we need proofreading and advice of the three different types of 'Terms and Conditions- we have prepared to be published, each corresponding to a specific service of such website. As a UK based company, we respond to the English Contract Law, therefore we are seeking for the guidance of a fully fledged British lawyey or expert. For now researching and analysing the documents and case law to ensure the accuracy of advice and procedure is only needed. At a later time, supervising the implementation of agreements and acting on our behalf in disputes and representing us in court, if necessary, could also be needed. Therefore, we would like to structure a long term business relationship and we think that starting from this helps you to better master the core of what we do for this project, in order for you to follow it closely on the legal side for us.

Hi, we have a simple online marketplace where customers may find freelance translators for language services. We need to prepare the terms and conditions and privacy policy for the website. We have collected many similar Terms and Conditions and privacy policy of most of the similar website and done an initial draft. Now we need a lawyer to draft and polish the Terms and Conditions based on what we have and some more input from us about the website. The existing draft is based on an Terms and Conditions automatically generated by a website, which allows only personal uses. Then we also copied almost half of the content from the Terms and Conditions of other websites. Now the draft has almost all that we need (safe to say more than 98%). We need the lawyer to rewrite the Terms and Conditions and privacy policy to avoid any IP, e.g. copyright issues so that it can be for commercial uses.
