Course overview

Now is not the time for weaknesses in your commercial contracts - reduce your exposure to risk and liability in two essential days of training.

In today’s tough economic environment, risk and liability must be kept to a minimum for businesses to survive. During the negotiation of international commercial agreements, the exact exposure in relation to damages is often not properly identified, anticipated or understood. Frequently, the contracting parties are:

  • Unaware of the true nature of the law of damages in the chosen governing law of the contract
  • Unaware of the fundamental differences of approach in the common law and civil law systems
  • Unaware that their attempts at limiting or excluding their liability may be ineffective

This specialist two-day seminar has been specifically developed to focus exclusively on this subject. The seminar offers a wide-ranging and detailed understanding of the law of damages under English law with comparisons to civil law jurisdictions. Presented by Arun Singh, an international specialist in the field, the seminar will enable participants to effectively draft and negotiate contracts with knowledge and confidence.

The course has been designed to give a practical solution to your drafting challenges. Throughout the course the expert trainer uses a balanced mix of theory, exercises, discussion and sample clauses to ensure the learning is embedded, so you can meet your commercial objectives.

This training course is part of our Commercial Contracts Training Course collection which has been designed for the in-house lawyer.
