  • A short introductory presentation which covers the key commercial terms clients should be aware of when entering into legal negotiations with third parties, and how careful drafting of the contract at the outset can avoid disputes arising in the future.
  • The scope of the presentation is limited to those terms you would commonly see in most commercial contracts (not industry specific) and discusses the different options available to each of the contracting parties.
  • In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, there will also be discussions as to how contracts are affected when certain unforeseen circumstances arise and how they might typically be accounted for when initially negotiating commercial contracts.
