Do you really need a contract as a freelance fashion designer? What should your contract include? On this episode of the SFD Podcast, you’ll hear from small business attorney Andrea Sager on contracts, design ownership, payment disputes, and the best ways to protect yourself and your assets when you’re freelancing in fashion.
Andrea Sager used to work for a big corporate firm, but she left when she realized that small business owners need and deserve quality legal advice just as much as huge companies, but needed that advice to be affordable. She now exclusively serves small businesses and freelancers, helping them protect themselves and navigate the tricky legal landscape!

If you’ve already been freelancing and you haven’t set up as an LLC or started using contracts, don’t panic! After you listen to the episode, pick one takeaway and take action! You don’t have to do everything at once. And you shouldn’t let these issues keep you from moving forward with your business.
