Master Services Agreement (MSA) Contract Best Practices

Gain a solid understanding of how MSA operates from start to finish, and be prepared to tackle all issues which will arise when drafting, reviewing or analyzing a MSA.

Many attorneys are asked to draft, review or analyze Offshore Master Service Agreements (MSA) by their clients. Oftentimes this is a daunting task as one wrong sentence or provisions can lead to problems years later when the MSA is challenged or when recovery is sought by a party pursuant to the MSA. Further complicating matters are state laws which seek to eliminate or limit the indemnity provisions which are commonly included in MSAs. This topic helps the attorneys charged with drafting, reviewing and analyzing the MSA to understand the nuts-and-bolts of the MSA. This information serves to teach all of the ins and outs of the MSA from the basics to the complicated indemnity and insurance provisions. The topic will address the pertinent issues from both the company and contractor positions and present the attorney with the relevant arguments to make depending upon which side they are on.
