Panel Discussion: Turning Your Contracts Into Business Tools

Views: 365 Published: 30 Apr 2012 Average Rating: unrated Print
 

Contracts should work as business tools for the parties so they get the results they want to accomplish. Yet most are designed to work as evidence in court, which is in fact rarely a requirement. This session will provide practical insights into contracts that truly manage and reduce risk and enhance business opportunities.

  • What guides today's contract design? Do contract drafters aim at water-tight, legally “perfect” contracts that may work for litigators but not for day-to-day users?
  • What can we as contract professionals and lawyers do to change this?
  • How can Proactive Law, Information Design, and Contract
  • Visualisation help us in this venture?
  • What can those of us working in commercial contracting or public procurement learn from the revisions that are currently going on in credit card agreements and consumer contracts – and vise versa?
  • How have some companies made contract implementation simpler and risk management better?
