PLI presents Drafting and Negotiating Corporate Agreements 2011
A properly crafted corporate agreement can serve as a valuable reference for you and your colleagues and, more importantly, can withstand legal challenges. At PLI's "Drafting & Negotiating Corporate Agreements 2011", you will learn how to reduce your clients goals to a complete, clearly written and enforceable agreement and what issues are most likely to come up in a negotiation of that agreement. Our highly experienced faculty of leading practitioners will teach you how the provisions of an agreement fit together and the fundamental drafting and negotiating principles common to all corporate agreements. You will gain an understanding of why and where the tough issues usually arise, as well as what you can do to effectively - and creatively - solve those issues. Plus, hear from litigators about how to draft contracts with enforcement in mind, and learn about common ethical issues in drafting corporate agreements. This program is essential for practitioners who draft agreements in complex business transactions.
