And here are the presentation slides:
When dreaming of building your business, likely one of the last things on your mind was how you were going to deal with contracts — pages and pages of fine print that could potentially make or break your life’s work.
Whether you are signing a letter of intent (LOI), looking at a complex lease agreement to move your company into its first “real” office, or just dealing with a litany of service agreements, correctly handing your contracts now will make a huge difference down the road.
This workshop will address many of the details that go into executing a contract, including:
- What are the stages of a contract?
- What makes a contract valid?
- Who can sign a contract?
- When is a contract non-binding?
- When should you bring an attorney into the process?
- What about “do it yourself” online contract solutions?
- Steps to take to protect your company now to avoid self-inflicted wounds and avoid an unnecessary bankruptcy
- Once the contract is signed, now what?
- What steps can you take to protect your company now to avoid self-inflicted wounds and avoid an unnecessary bankruptcy? Or what if a party I am doing business with files bankruptcy?
Our attorneys will also discuss specific contractual agreements, including:
- Letters of intent
- Service agreements
