About

This seminar explains 23 typical stylistic and substantive drafting errors usually found in all kinds of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, contracts for the sale of goods and services, licenses, real estate contracts, settlement agreements, employment and consulting agreements, partnership agreements, and much more.

Novice and experienced drafters will learn highly practical techniques to advance their contract drafting skills to the next level. The seminar will recap some of the stylistic recommendations Ms. Espenschied has taught in Virginia before, using new examples drawn from a 2017 high-profile merger agreement.

The seminar also includes brand new substantive content on:

  • The seven components of a basic indemnification provision;
  • How to use these components to negotiate the best deal for your client even when the bargaining leverage is less than optimal;
  • Negotiating strategies for key merger concepts, like thresholds, baskets, materiality scrapes, and indemnification caps; and
  • Recent Delaware cases on the effect of corporate seals.

Last, but not least, this seminar will fulfill your ethics credit requirement with a discussion of 8 Rules of Professional Ethics that pertain specifically to transactional practice.
