Legal practitioners, business executives, and contracts specialists deal with a variety of fundamental business agreements on a regular basis to help establish and maintain important relationships with clients, suppliers, and contractors. Built into all such agreements are â€œmust-knowâ€ terms and conditions including confidentiality, non-compete, limitation of liability, indemnities, and warranties and representations. In turn, these agreements play a key role in other major contracts such as IT and business process outsourcing, IP licensing, purchasing, business financing, shareholder, cross-border, and securities agreements.
All such agreements are pivotal in safeguarding your commercial profitability and credibility, and fatal errors in contract formation can result in devastating litigation costs, damages, deficits, and diminished credibility and goodwill. It is therefore vital, particularly in the current post-credit crunch climate, to gain a critical understanding of key legal developments and updates of these agreements, as well as to review essential elements forming such documentation.
