Achieving Precision in Contract Drafting
This information-packed, how-to webcast focuses on the drafting challenges experienced transactional lawyers face in balancing precision and flexibility when drafting corporate documents. Noted transactional skills instructor Charles Fox will address finding the practical balance between perfect precision and clarity, on the one hand, and time pressure, cost considerations and practical necessity on the other.
Using over a dozen, real-world, instructive, before and after examples, Mr. Fox will show you why precision is important, why precision is sometimes an elusive goal, how and why we sometimes use imprecise terms to achieve agreement, and when precision is absolutely necessary. Plus, you’ll learn four outright mistakes lawyers make that lead to imprecision. You’ll return to your drafting more confident in your ability to effectively guide your clients through the contract drafting and negotiation process.
Lawyers from all areas of transactional practice, including mergers and acquisitions, real estate, corporate, business, finance, and intellectual property, will find this program helpful.
