At JMW, our commercial law solicitors have worked with businesses contracting for services as well as service providers, and can ensure that your contracts have robust relationship management processes in place and clear mechanisms to allow for any necessary changes to the relationship.
By working with us, you will be able to create a service agreement that sets out clear and realistic expectations for all of the parties involved, while minimising any potential risks associated with the process.
What Should Be Included in a Service Agreement?
When contracting for services, it is important to set out exactly what services are to be provided and how these services are to be paid for. Equally, it is important to ensure there is a mechanism for how things are managed should anything go wrong.
A well-drafted services agreement will set out each party’s responsibilities in the relationship in a way that provides all of the companies involved with certainty as to what is expected of them. This includes:
- What the services are, and how often they are to be performed
- Clear service levels that will allow the supplier’s performance to be objectively measured
- Anything that the customer is required to do or provide to allow the supplier to deliver the service
- A clear mechanism for the parties to resolve any issues that arise with their working relationship
