PLI's Drafting and Negotiating Corporate Agreements 2013
At this perennial favorite, PLI has gathered expert faculty to teach the basics of drafting and negotiating corporate agreements - from how the provisions of an agreement fit together, to the fundamental drafting and negotiating principles common to all corporate agreements. You will learn how to reduce your clients goals to a complete, clearly written and enforceable agreement, and how to identify what issues are most likely to come up in a negotiation of that agreement. You will gain an understanding of why and where the tough issues usually arise during the drafting phase, as well as what you can do to effectively, and creatively, solve those issues - and thereby free yourself from a dependency on forms. Plus you will obtain a litigators perspective on 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.
