Drafting and Negotiating Contracts

A one-day Masterclass for anyone involved in the drafting or negotiation of contracts with suppliers or clients. We will look at the basic principles that underpin all contracts and then focus on some of the more important areas of risk and liability within contracts that you need to get right. There will be a focus on contracts involving brands and other IP assets but the subjects discussed will be wide enough to cover most contractual negotiations.


What will I learn?

  • What distinguishes a contract from an unenforceable promise?   
  • What are the key parts of a contract that you need to focus on when undertaking a contract review?
  • What are the most common problem areas in contract negotiations? In other words, what are the traps?
  • What are the industry-specific issues that cultural institutions need to address in contracts?
  • How to strike the fine balance between risk and benefit.

This will be a practical workshop that will include as little hard law as we can get away with but which should give you a lot of practical and commercial tips to help minimise risk and maximise benefit.


Who is it for? 

Those involved in procurement, licensing and buying at every level from the CEO and Commercial Director to Contract Managers.
