Every Contract is a Litigation Waiting to Happen: Drafting Advice From a Litigator.
Friday, Jan 11 2013

Market standard clauses that appear in many business contracts (e.g. choice of law clauses, integration clauses, fee-shifting clauses) often do not work as intended when tested in the court room. This seminar identifies which clauses are subject to repeat litigation, and makes practical drafting suggestions that will reduce the risk of contract disputes. This program will help you draft commercial contracts to: minimize the risk of fraud claims; allocate the risk of vague or ambiguous clauses; clarify the scope of indemnifications; better protect confidential information; avoid waivers of contract rights; better specify what damages can and cannot be recovered; refine the circumstances in which performance is excused; and improve upon dispute clauses.
