COACHING LEGAL TEMPLATE PACKAGE - FOR BUSINESS & LIFE COACHES
If you’re a life or business coach and not a legal specialist it can be tricky to foresee all your legal risks and how to lower them. Which is why I’ve set up a legal template package specifically for business and life coaches. It runs you through:
⁃ How to structure your business;
⁃ What laws you need to comply with;
⁃ What you need to think about with respect to your IP; and
⁃ How to protect your business from legal risk
And it includes these three crucial document templates (with simple instructions) for you to fill in and use:
⁃ Coaching Business Terms
⁃ Website Terms
Also included is an hour long Legal Masterclass (which you can purchase separately in my Shop) on the issues you need to consider when setting up your coaching business.
TRADE MARK PACKAGES
Trade Mark Report Service in which I will advise on the registrability of the mark and check the Intellectual Property Office’s registers to see if anyone else has the same or similar mark. I then prepare a report for you with my findings, and advise on which class of goods/services you should register your mark in, the best way to protect your name and/or logo and tactics for dealing with any earlier rights owners. This is always advisable before spending money at the IPO registering a mark that might not be available or registrable.
For those of you who are time poor, I also offer a Trade Mark Registration Service. This consists of me preparing and submitting the application to the IPO, dealing with all the correspondence from the Trade Mark Examiner, dealing with any enquiries and guiding you through the registration process right through to the issuance of the trade mark certificate.
Do you need help on a regular basis? Would you like to be allocated a fixed amount of hours each month for legal assistance?
I offer a retainer service to clients, where in exchange for a fixed fee price you are allocated a certain amount of hours of my time. You can use this time for telephone advice, drafting/reviewing/negotiating commercial contracts, advice on data protection worries, help with IP matters (including trade mark registrations), in fact anything you need commercial legal help with.
I offer bundles of time from 5 hours a month up to 20 hours.
