The success of international business depends on the quality of contracts signed. Too often, if the relationship between parties happens to deteriorate, loopholes in the contract make the situation worse; had the contract been better drafted the relationship could have been preserved. Negotiating and drafting a contract are skills and techniques that need to be learned, as does managing the â€œpost-contractâ€ and dealing with different kinds of conflict resolution. This seminar will focus on the main problems that arise in international contracts and particular attention will be given to avoiding disputes.
Who should attend?
ï¬ Legal directors and corporate counsel from companies involved in international trade;
ï¬ Practising lawyers;
ï¬ Legal practitioners advising international trading companies;
ï¬ Business people involved in international trade and dispute resolution.
ï¬ Study of a mock case, reflecting the reality and practices of international business, within working groups limited to roughly 10 participants. The mock case will be sent to participants before the training so that they can read the facts, prepare for working in groups and identify the contractual issues which will be addressed during the negotiations.
ï¬ Technical and practical presentations with international experts.
ï¬ Debate amongst participants and speakers during interactive plenary sessions.
