When a lawyer reviews or drafts a contract, he or she may be unsure what a particular provision means, how it impacts the client, or how to revise it. One of the drafter's primary responsibilities in drafting a contract is to ensure that the client accepts an appropriate degree of risk for the circumstances.
The purpose of this program is to explain what the best transactional lawyers know about risk and liability-shifting provisions, including:
- seven simple steps for analyzing any complicated contractual provision
- five things every contract drafter should understand about risk
- how to determine the appropriate degree of risk in a contract
- how to assess risk in the template you're marking up
- how to shift risk from one party to the other
- six kinds of indemnification
- seven negotiable variables in indemnification
- how to draft effective scope, limitation of liability, liquidated damages, and indemnification provisions
Explore these advanced contracting elements in this three-hour course taught by contracts expert Lenné Espenschied. With more than 25 years of experience focusing on corporate and transactional work, Ms. Espenschied teaches on risk, analyzing complicated provisions, and indemnification to help you negotiate like a pro in complicated transactions.
Please note: This course is offered remotely through a Zoom platform. A device equipped with a camera and microphone will be required to participate.
