Contract Essentials

The strength of your commercial contracts are integral to how smoothly your business is managed. Good commercial contracts should, at the very least,  be able to minimise your risk, protect your assets and manage your relationships.

From your terms of trade to your credit contracts, guarantees, distribution and service agreements, commercial contracts will form the foundation of your organisation as your business will be guided by these.

This highly practical and relevant workshop will look at some key aspects of a good commercial contract including examples of what types of clauses may come to your aid in protecting your interests, how certain types of contracts can provide you with an extra avenue of enforcement and recovery and  what to look for before you sign on the dotted line.

Join our experienced Commercial Law team at a workshop which will have you rushing back to your business to make sure your commercial contracts stack up under scrutiny.
