An effective contract is the beginning of a positive business relationship and success. It is important to understand the elements of drafting an enforceable commercial contract and the legal issues arising from contractual clauses. Without a clear understanding of the contract law, you may risk suffering a loss in the event of any disputes. This workshop will help participants to identify complex legal issues arising from contractual clauses, understand the implications on the contract and discover how to negotiate clauses which limit liability for contractual claims. Real cases and solutions to deal with common issues and pitfalls in contracts will be discussed.
At the end of the workshop, participants will develop the necessary techniques on how to draft and negotiate contracts.
