Job Description

Updated

Back in July of this year you helped me with a Consultant's Agreement. The nature of my working relationship with this consultant was ongoing, as we were involved in a project requiring many man-hours. Although the job has not been completed I have decided to discontinue his service either temporarily or permanently. I have previously agreed to give him 30-days written notice in the case of termination of services for any reason. I have not yet informed him of my decision and would like your advice in doing so and perhaps your assistance drafting the written notice document, which in my opinion should read as a legal document specifying requirements of the hand over of deliverables and re-iterating the binding elements of the Consultant Agreement. I have attached the signed Agreement you drafted for me for your reference. His monthly rate has been $1800USD. Potential complications include the following: 1. The Agreement expired on Oct 31st. Should I first have him sign another Agreement and only after he does give him 30-days written notice? 2. Since the nature of the work he has been hired to do is mechanical and electrical engineering, it's very technical. I don't know how much work has actually been accomplished therefore, I intend to present the work he hands over to another engineer/design firm so they may independently confirm what has been achieved and allow them to comment on the quality and viability of said work. 3. Many components have been ordered and sent to his residence in South Africa, I require him to send all of them to me. Furthermore, the components need to be packed in such a way as to reach me safely. 4. He had been working on software programming for the project. I don't know what to expect as deliverables. 5. In April 2013 I agreed to put up 50% of the cost of a Mac Mini for him to purchase. At the time of the purchase it was not clear who would retain "custody" of the computer, since then he has made it clear he will retain the computer which means he will need to buy my half from me. I contributed $820USD. Looking forward to your earliest feedback. Cheers & thanks, Michael

I am in need of a letter to serve as written notice for the termination of consultant services. I have been working with the consultant for a number of months under a Consultantís Agreement drafted by another lawyer. I have prepared a draft copy of the Termination Letter covering the main points I would like to see covered in the document. I require legal assistance for this because I would like the Termination Letter to read as a legal document and there are a few extenuating circumstances that could prove problematic for me if they are not handled properly. I have attached the signed Agreement you drafted for me for your reference. His monthly rate has been $1800USD. Potential complications include the following: 1. The Agreement expired on Oct 31st.
