Contracts should not live in the ‘bottom drawer’ PART 2
24 September 2020
Live Online Webinar
Contracts should not live in the ‘bottom drawer’. They should:
• be fit for purpose;
• drafted in plain unambiguous language; and
• provide – to the extent that time permits – a plan to address for all likely issues that will arise.
A much better contract results from a collaborative effort between the lawyers and those instructing them.
In this two-part presentation Mark and Ashley will (i) survey issues that commonly arise when contracts are being drafted and (ii) look at the contractual issues when things go wrong. The presentation will be presented on-line which will limit audience interaction but audience participation is very much encouraged - either through questions posed during the presentation or, better still, before the presentation starts. The presentation will be very practical with observations and tips drawn from case studies and Mark and Ashley’s own experiences.
All you wanted to know about contracts but were afraid to ask!
