Why You Should Attend:
In most contract negotiations, the key to getting a "good" contract is to identify and understand specific "risk-shifting" provisions of the contract. In this presentation, the presenters will discuss strategies for addressing key contractual provisions, such as indemnification, termination, and change order processes. They will look at these provisions from the stronger party's point of view, and from the weaker party's; they will analyze and prioritize the risks involved; and then discuss the subtleties of agreeing on a final provision.

Who Should Attend?
This presentation will be a concise, practitioner-level look at negotiating key contract provisions that affect companies every day. It will provide useful insights for anyone who has to review or negotiate contracts, including project owners, general contractors, subcontractors, professional service contractors, and the attorneys who draft and negotiate for them.
