Services Agreement for Copywriters

Services Agreement for Copywriters


Let’s cut to the chase: you’re a brilliant wordsmith, but you’re too busy wow-ing your clients (and their clients!) with your way with words to worry about whether you and your biz are adequately protected. After all, your focus is SEO-optimised copy that converts – not legalese! Let us handle that part for you with our Services Agreement for Copywriters. Avoid awkward conversations about draft copy being plastered all over your clients’ socials before it’s been paid for, or having to chase slow-to-respond clients who jam up your production line like a temperamental printer. This industry-specific template only needs a tiny bit of tailoring before it’s ready to cover your copy-crushin’ butt.

Who’s it for? 

Our Services Agreement for Copywriters is perfect for all kinds of copy crafters. From EDM editors to web copy writers, to sales pitch perfectors, to caption creators – and everything in between.  

What's included? 

  • Clear payment terms
  • Your obligations (and those of your client)
  • Intellectual property protection
  • Termination terms
  • Confidentiality provisions
  • A completely customisable proposal that sets out the specifics
  • Many more industry-specific bits and pieces to ensure your arrangement is legally legit


        A couple of quick things to make sure we’re on the same page:

        First, purchasing our templates, utilising our free resources or having a chat with us as part of a consultation doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Foundd Legal (sorry!). It also doesn’t constitute legal advice.

        All templates adhere to Australian principles of contract law and are designed for those doing business in Australia (unless they specifically state that they are in accordance with New Zealand law, for businesses in New Zealand). Similar principles may apply in your jurisdiction, but we recommend that you consult with a qualified lawyer in your area prior to purchasing our templates.

        While we do our best to minimise legalese (that’s complex lawyer-speak) within our contracts, there are certain things that require particular wording in order to best protect you and your business. Please don’t expect our contracts to be super simple - they’re as simple as they possibly can be, while still being comprehensive and putting your needs first (even the ones you didn’t know you had!). Of course, if you’re having trouble understanding something specific, you’re welcome to get in touch with any questions!
