Description

NO QUÉBEC LAWYER SHOULD IGNORE THE LEGAL AND BUSINESS RISKS AND CONSEQUENCES RELATED TO INCORPORATING COMMON LAW CONCEPTS INTO AGREEMENTS RULED BY QUÉBEC LAWS OR WHEN WORKING WITH AGREEMENTS FROM COMMON LAW JURISDICTIONS
As Québec lawyers, you’re dealing with interprovincial and cross-border situations that raise a number of challenges regarding common law clauses and notions. It is imperative that you understand these concepts and notions in order to minimize your client’s or organization’s exposure to risks, liability and legal costs.

•Have you ever had to negotiate business agreements containing common law notions and concepts even if the agreement was expressly governed by Québec legislation?
•Are you frequently using templates to draft your business agreements?
•Are you leaving clauses in your agreements just because you don’t know the consequences of removing them?
•Do you come across common law clauses and notions which make you nervous because you don’t understand the consequences of integrating them into your agreements?
•Do you work with agreements ruled entirely by Ontario law?
•If you answered yes to any of these questions, this Canadian Institute conference is for you! DON’T MISS!
•Understanding the differences in termination of agreements in Québec and common law provinces to better protect your rights
•Comparing key differences between Québec and Ontario issues to better advise your clients
•Main differences between Québec and common law provinces with respect to security interests and guarantees
•Tailoring alternative dispute resolution clauses in Québec and common law provinces in order to have a predictable dispute resolution process to save you time and money
•Identifying key business considerations that are essential to agreements to better serve your clients’ interests
