WEBCAST | Contract Drafting: Tips and Traps
Good drafting practices focuses on clarity, brevity, and keep the overall best interests of the client in mind. The lawyer must be a good business partner with the client and must do her best to get the deal done while still protecting the overall best interests of the client. This CLE will cover tips and traps, from the view of in-house counsel, in drafting, executing, docketing, managing and enforcing contracts. Don will provide tested and proven practical advice in managing a wide range of corporate contracts. He will discuss the inherent tensions between our "zealous advocacy" requirements and the business reality need to "grease the skids" to get the job done. He will also address best practices for Letters of Intent, Non-disclosure agreements, boilerplate, dispute resolution, amendments, exhibits, and best practices vis-a-vis contract filing, docketing, renewals, termination, and notices. All lawyers who draft, negotiate, interpret, and enforce contracts will benefit from the material in this one hour CLE.
