Drafting Commercial Contracts Seminar (London, United Kingdom - October 30-31, 2018) -

11:17AM ET 7/19/2018 Business Wire

The "Drafting
Commercial Contracts"
conference has been added to's

Negotiate and draft clear and concise commercial agreements that meet
the challenges of today's commercial environment

Business is founded on the crystallization of the terms of a deal.
Clarity and fair construction are the key to a successful commercial
agreement. Without a clear agreement commercial and legal disputes are
likely; and unclear agreements are one of the largest causes of costly
commercial litigation.

With this in mind, Mark Weston and Falconbury have developed this
modular and comprehensive multi-part programme that focuses on
delivering practical and applied training of the key drafting skills
needed to create transparent and direct contracts that deliver on a
legal and commercial level. Each section of the course builds on the
section before.

Part One: Drafting, Structure, Interpretation and Formation of Contracts
focuses on developing a robust structure and formation to your contracts
and expanding your drafting skills to deliver concise and watertight

Part Two: Precise and Careful Drafting looks in more detail at the more
complex clauses and how they can be drafted and applied to leverage
commercial value and manage legal risk.

By attending this programme you will:

  • Examine assignment and novation to ensure you are suitably protected
    in the case of transfer or sale of rights
  • Consider the purpose and effect of typical boilerplate clauses and how
    you can leverage value for your organisation through clearer drafting
  • Get-to-grips with payments and interest terms to understand how
    penalties can be applied
  • Expand your knowledge of the risk of drafting a contract without a
    confidentiality clause
  • Understand the risks that can be created through poor drafting in
    practical exercises under the guidance of the expert
  • Discuss any disputes or issues you are facing with colleagues from
    other organisations to gain new ideas and perspectives
  • Understand the pitfalls and pluses to applying an effective standard
    structure and format to every contract
  • Master practical drafting techniques to write concise and effective
  • Examine special contractual arrangements and letters of intent
  • Learn how to interpret variations and time of essence clauses
  • Clarify the distinction between best endeavours' and reasonable
    endeavours' - essential terminology in commercial contracts
  • Get up-to-date with the use and drafting of contractual warranties and
  • Understand the effect of exclusion and limitation clauses, and how
    they can be used to manage your exposure
