Hosted By Practising Law Institute

The Practising Law Institute’s Drafting and Negotiating Corporate Agreements 2020 program will 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. The expert faculty will explain how to reduce a client’s 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. Plus you will obtain a litigator’s perspective on how to draft contracts with enforcement in mind, and learn about common ethical issues in drafting corporate agreements.

Mayer Brown partner Jennifer Carlson will present the session entitled Ethical Issues in Drafting Corporate Agreements. Topics will include:

  • Identifying ethical errors in contracts
  • What is the role of the attorney in drafting?
  • Understanding who the client is and addressing recurring conflicts of interest
