Advanced Contracting Writing: Strategically Managing the Contracting Process

July 16

Learn leading trends in contract formation and drafting techniques which can simplify and streamline the content of good agreements.

The most important strategic commercial relationships (sales and procurement) should be documented under written contracts. But far too many corporate agreements are complex burdensome documents which rarely mirror the important aspects of the relationship between the parties. Moreover, typical contracts can be costly and difficult to administrate. These challenges become exponentially more difficult when multiplied across a typical company’s portfolio of agreements. This topic will explain leading trends in contract formation and construction being used by leading companies and governmental agencies. It will also discuss modern drafting techniques which can simplify and streamline the content of good agreements. The material will also explain methods for optimal management of contract portfolios. Review real-world contract management examples from the speaker’s career and consulting experience. He will illustrate key points using actual language examples.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe best practices in managing contract portfolios.
  • You will be able to discuss smart ways to mitigate contractual risk.
  • You will be able to identify innovative ways to improve the signability of corporate agreements.
  • You will be able to recognize industry sector traps built into their paper.
