Azrights Launch Website Contract in Context: Helping Small Businesses Get the Right Frills, and the Right Skills... and Smaller Bills

Share Article

Azrights Solicitors announce the launch of their new on-line multimedia product, Website Contract in Context, which provides small businesses and start ups with practical help on how to get a website, and the research, processes, players and legal agreements necessary for success. Law firms are under pressure to deliver legal services more cost effectively, and in alternative ways to the traditional one to one consultancy model. At the same time, the internet is now an essential marketplace and tool for business. However the costs of obtaining impartial, professional and legal advice prevents many businesses from getting the best from their investment in an on-line presence, and in some cases they can even fail altogether. The new product is aimed to inform and provide practical help to businesses so they can avoid expensive mistakes.

It comes with an extensive multi media course about websites, a website requirements checklist, contract template written in plain English The product is created in conjunction with Ferreter.net, a web development company.

Last month Azrights released a similar SEO Contract in Context product, which is currently a free resource.

Shireen Smith had the idea for the product as a result of On-line Branding workshops at the British Library's BIPC she has been running since June last year

The Website Contract In Context product is available for licensing by lawyers and other business advisers wanting to offer an advisory service to their clients for a 6 month trial period. By accessing the system they can gain more insight into different types of online presence and the commercial issues surrounding these contracts. Internet consultants have traditionally adopted a very informal approach, many of them not using contracts at all. As this is to the disadvantage of the buyer who has less clarity about what they are being sold, it is important that lawyers should offer advice to their clients on internet matters.
