Fairfax Bar Association’s Contract Boilerplate CLE: Transactional vs. Litigator Perspective
Event: Monday, March 30, 2015
Protorae Law members Kathleen Kelley and Brian Chandler to serve as speakers at the March 30th, Contract Boilerplate CLE: Transactional vs. Litigator Perspective, hosted by the Fairfax County Bar Association’s Business Law Section.
Once a litigator is involved in a matter, the language the transactional lawyer drafted provides the landscape of the legal battlefield. “Standard” provisions are found in every contract, but those provisions can significantly effect the parties’ rights in future disputes.
This CLE program will examine typical contract boilerplate provisions, reasons for including certain provisions, how those provisions can be modified to serve various purposes and bargaining postures, and how poorly or even well drafted provisions can negatively impact your client in litigation.
Included will be sample boilerplate provisions with drafting tips from both the transactional and litigator perspective.
1.5 MCLE Credits Pending.
