These Agreements usually go hand in hand with a Consultant Finders Fee Agreement, but can also be used on their own. A Non-Disclosure/Non Circumvention is self explanatory.

In today's business world, you may find yourself in a position where you can match one or more of your contacts with one another for the purpose of profit.

Writers, songwriters, authors and the like need contracts to protect their interests and secure payment as well as other obligations, like screen credit, rewrite opportunities, etc.
If you are in the entertainment business you might be a manager or the talent and you require a Personal Management Agreement. This is probably one of the most important contracts you will sign because sometimes these run for several years.
