Drafting More Effective Contracts
The competitive edge that all transactional attorneys need
Drafting effective contracts is a basic function of all transactional attorneys. The goal is to draft a contract that accurately reflects the business deal, properly allocates risk, is readily understood, and is able to stand up to hostile, rigorous post-execution examination—while educating your clients and meeting their aggressive timeline. Learn how to use best practices in drafting and negotiating processes to achieve ideal results. Learn about key terms and conditions, as well as common pitfalls. Hear what clients expect from outside counsel during the negotiations and in codifying a deal. Learn how to make the most effective use of current technologies. Hear the faculty explain tried-and-true techniques for creative problem solving and removing impasses. The panelists discuss the ins-and-outs of drafting and negotiating contracts from the initial email to final executable—using practical, modern-world examples and critical analysis.
In a competitive, increasingly digitized environment where companies have limited resources, the lawyer who efficiently strikes an effective balance between achieving the right level of contractual protection and negotiating to reflect their clients’ risk-tolerance is most likely to be repeatedly engaged.
