Event Description

Drafting And Negotiation Of Commercial Contracts • Chennai

Achromic Point would like to invite you for our upcoming workshop on “Drafting and Negotiation of Commercial Contracts” along with “Vaish Associates Advocates” as our knowledge partner in Chennai on February 7, 2019 at Hotel Radisson GRT.

In today’s highly competitive and cost-conscious environment, negotiating and drafting commercial contracts is an important part of business activity and needs continual updating and enhancing. It requires legal professionals to be well versed with the drafting techniques and expertise to foresee the risk and have futuristic thinking to handle contracts in the best interest of their organization.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to keep up to date with current developments in the law and practice from looking at recent case law on implied terms and the circumstances in which a court would enforce an express duty of good faith, through to an examination of specific terms such as those relating to assignment, transfer and third party rights. This training will also equip you with the skills necessary to effectively manage contractual pitfalls and implement dispute management.
