This full day training program is aimed at private practice lawyers and corporate counsel committed to drafting top quality legal contracts which would operate effectively on a global level. The highly competitive international business environment demands the best contracts for smooth and profitable operation.

Be it Employment Contracts, Shareholder’s Agreement, Share Purchase Agreement, Asset Purchase Agreement or Memorandum of Understanding, it is essential to protect your clients’ interests by ensuring a well-drafted and negotiated contract.

English contract law is widely used in international transactions across a variety of jurisdictions, particularly where the deal involves parties based in India, the Middle East, Singapore Hong Kong, China or Russia. It is flexible, adaptable and practical when dealing with rapidly evolving technology, markets and financial structures, yet its principles are clear and well-established. English contract law allows parties to set out obligations and allocate risk in a way that will be consistently interpreted and enforced by courts and arbitral tribunals.

This course will examine in detail, the practical drafting techniques, legal principles, language, and negotiating points to keep in mind while drafting a contract. Using practical case studies based on recent transactions, it will guide you through the whole process from Heads of Terms to completion, performance and enforcement of the contract.
