Avoiding a Mess: What Litigators Want In-house Counsel to Know When Drafting Contracts
In-house counsel commonly have their litigators on speed dial when they get the call that there is a contract dispute or a company wants to terminate a relationship.
But, how often do you bring litigators into commercial transactions earlier in the process? A team effort between the people who draft contracts and those who help companies terminate them or resolve conflicts between contracting parties can help provide the best long term value for companies in commercial transactions.
In this presentation, seasoned litigators, commercial attorneys and in-house counsel will talk about contract provisions that keep them up at night and provide practical tips for how to draft better contracts to reduce corporate and litigation risk. Ever wonder how to draft enforceable limitations of liability, indemnification provisions, licenses, warranties, and other provisions? Then this is a great program for you. In this program we will look at the good, the bad, and the ugly in contract drafting and the impact of contract provisions on litigation providing attendees with practical solutions that you can implement immediately.
