WELCOME TO THE ORCHARD
I set up The Orchard with the sole aim of providing expert legal advice to purpose-driven businesses. My experience is that creative folk tend to shy away from getting their legal foundations in place. It feels like a drag and compared to the excitement of the creative process and getting your wonderful products and services out into the world, putting those structures in place tends to come a pretty poor second. I am here to show you otherwise!
One of the most important things you can do at the outset is to sort out your contracts with your customers. Your relationship with your customers is one of the most precious assets of your business. Protecting and respecting that relationship with a properly drafted written contract is quite simply just good business sense. Getting a well-drafted customer contract in place, which is tailored to suit your industry and reflects your business and your values is a game changer:
it gives your business the professional appearance it deserves leading to greater respect from potential clients and business collaborators
it forces you to think through all of the areas of your business systematically and work out what your policies are and which risks and responsibilities you are prepared to take
by setting all your policies out in black and white, it makes future fallouts with clients much less likely
it helps to ensure you get paid and puts you in a stronger position if you don't
it protects your precious intellectual property
if things go wrong, it lessens the amount of liability you are likely to be left with
last but not least, you can sleep soundly at night knowing you have been responsible and done all you can to protect you, your business and your assets.
The way I see it: the world needs businesses like yours. Every business like yours, which operates from the heart and for the greatest good, is a step in the right direction. Getting your legal foundations in place protects you and makes it more likely that you will be able to continue working your magic. And my mission is to help you do just that!
It is my absolute privilege to help businesses like yours. If you would like to book in for a free legal consultation, give me a call or click on the button below and fill in the form.

Lovely things clients say...
Hiring Natasha is one of the best things I've done for my coaching business. Natasha found a way to make the creating of my contract and terms and conditions super simple and fun even. I never thought I'd say that about legal work.
I feel really held by her because she has always been there for me when I needed to tweak something or if I had any questions about particular client situations.
Having a professional coaching agreement means that I've felt at the top of my game from the start and it creates a beautifully strong foundation between me and my clients as well.
I have referred a colleague to Natasha already and will continue to do so as she is an incredibly important part of my Success Team.
On top of being a super competent lawyer she also happens to be a beautiful human being.
A pleasure to work with.
