Describe your obligations, including the service you must perform to fulfill your obligations under the contract and be as detailed as possible. For example, if you are writing a marketing brochure for a customer, describe the length of the brochure, the purpose of the brochure and establish that you are only responsible for providing the text, and not the layout or design, for the brochure.
Except for a sole proprietorship, enter your business entity's name and not a personal name as a party to the contract. Otherwise, Cohen adds, "you will be personally 'on the hook' and you have lost the limited liability that was likely one of your reasons for forming the entity in the first place. Never blur the distinction between you and the entity you own or represent."
