Client/Agency contracts

If you are looking for a good starting point to create a new agency contract, would like help analysing a proposed contract or a health check on your existing contracts then we can help. 

We advise many members each year on the content of their communications agency contracts and negotiations so have a wealth of knowledge to share.

Tailored service

If you would like an independent health check on your agency contract or a new proposed contract we use our knowledge and expertise built up over many years to provide you with a confidential detailed report of the status quo for you to use in your negotiations.  Sufficient notice is required for a detailed healthcheck, but we will respond to quick queries as soon as possible.
