25% DISCOUNT for HKCCA members!

Risk allocation between contracting parties tends to be one of the more contentious issues in contract negotiation. Considering the increasing complexity of transactions, as well as the potential liability for breaches of contract, the drafting of risk allocation clauses such as indemnities, limitations on liability, termination rights, force majeure and contractual remedies clauses, can often be a cause of discord between contracting parties. These types of clauses are difficult to draft properly and if drafted too vaguely, can create ground for conflict.

Attend this practical workshop to learn best practice methods on drafting these clauses. Our esteemed instructor, Jamie Benson, Director of Duane Morris & Selvam, will impart tools and tips on how to draft these proficiently to enable you to mitigate risk and safeguard the performance your contracts.

  • How to effectively draft common risk allocation mechanisms such as indemnification, limitations on liability, termination rights, force majeure, contractual remedies, insurance coverage, payment terms and guarantees
