Drafting Effective Contracts: Balancing Perfect Precision with Cost and Time Constraints
Lawyers face a difficult challenge when they draft contracts - creating a document that accurately reflects the business deal or relationship while also meeting client timelines and cost constraints. This information-packed, how-to webinar focuses on finding the practical balance between these often conflicting imperatives - 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, noted contract drafting instructor Charles Fox will share key considerations for undertaking this important cost/benefit analysis, and offer advice for when and how to sacrifice perfect precision in favour of other client goals. You’ll learn why precision is important, why precision is sometimes an elusive goal, why and how we sometimes use imprecise terms to achieve agreement, and when precision is absolutely necessary. You’ll return to your practice more confident in your ability to negotiate and draft effective contracts that meet your clients’ needs.
