Contract Terms You've Got to Understand
This workshop covers the contract terms that pose the most risk and that often provide fertile ground for disputes. Attendees will learn ways to edit and negotiate such terms to level the playing field. This workshop explores terms such as: pay-if-paid/pay-when-paid; retention; integration clauses; incorporation of the prime contract; termination for cause and convenience; indemnity and liability; liquidated damages; notice provisions; no-damage-for-delay clauses; force majeure, and sleeper clauses such venue and choice of law.
The workshop includes practical and entertaining exercises such as the "timed" contract term scavenger hunt and a mock negotiation of contract terms.
