Whether verbal or written,
a contract is a critical element
of the creative worker’s toolkit.
Transactions in business usually have an offer and acceptance of terms, and offer value or consideration in exchange for goods and services. These are contracts. Whether verbal or written, a contract is a critical element of the creative worker’s toolkit. This is especially true when innovation, intellectual property and intangible deliverables are involved. Through our team of legal practitioners with a knowledge of creative pursuits i+v oversees creatives:

Concierge Services: i+v has developed an empowerment model for Creatives called C.L.A.P.S
Too often in creative transactions there is no tangible contract in place. Sometimes a handshake and a commitment is not enough. I+v will have the contracts formulated for you.
After the contract is signed, then you will have to ensure that all the deliverables and timelines are met, both on your side and by the other party. This includes the collection of fees. Let us make this process easy for you.
Don’t let anyone encourage you to sign a ‘standard contract’. There is no such thing! Ensure that the contract terms that you agree to are suitable to you and in keeping with your perspectives and capability. Let us get the best terms for you.
Often the hardest element of creative work for an independent practitioner is ‘getting paid’. I+v takes care of this process from invoicing to collection. Let us walk the process through on your behalf.
