If your company needs nondisclosure agreement help, you’re not alone. These agreements, also known as confidentiality agreements, are rather common in a number of industries. This is a special type of legal contract that two parties may agree to in certain corporate matters, which outlines documents, items or pieces of information that are not to be discussed with any other outside parties for various reasons.
Why a Nondisclosure Agreement May Be in Your Future
Janathan L. Allen, APC provides comprehensive business law advice and representation for businesses in San Diego, including corporate governance, formation of entities, confidentiality agreements and more. Our legal consultants can prepare customized agreements to bind you or your company to another individual or company that is currently doing business with you or may do business with you in the future. Here are five reasons why you may need to consider such an agreement for your business:
- You have trusted a designer or design firm to create a new layout and format for your website or marketing materials, which will include some features that are unique to your business and/or brand. If you want to make sure this design remains unique to your business, it may be in your best interest to get some nondisclosure agreement help.
- You are considering applicants to work on a special project that includes some confidential information, such as new ideas or new products that no other businesses in your industry have tried yet. If they sign confidentiality agreements, you can rest assured the information is safe.
- You need help from a third-party company on a design or product that involves some very unique ideas or concepts that are copyrighted or patented. You may want to make sure they agree to not to disclose proprietary information first.
- You require outside help to get a project done, and want to make sure your unique methods, systems, products or concepts stay within your company. A nondisclosure agreement is the best way to finish by the deadline without fear that the temporary staff or outsourced help will take your unique ideas with them when they leave.
- You’re doing work with vendors outside your company that requires giving them access to confidential information. Yet again, the answer is a confidentiality agreement. Your company can create a personalized version of this document, which your legal consultants can review before having it signed by the third party.
