Remedies provisions are meant to add a degree of certainty in the uncertain world of business transactions should a business deal go bad. These provisions are the first places a court will look to for guidance in a contract dispute so that it can better understand the intent of the involved parties. However, remedies often are not customized when documenting the details of a transaction, possibly rendering them unenforceable.
What You Will Learn
Remedies provisions outline the damages available for parties involved in a commercial agreement in case of a breach of contract. But to make these provisions effective, each provision must be clearly stated, thoroughly reviewed, and in some cases completely overhauled during the drafting process. This 90-minute audio replay will break down the key elements of negotiating and drafting enforceable remedies provisions in commercial contracts.
Topics covered in this program include:
Negotiating, drafting, and enforcing remedies in commercial contracts
Specific remedies available
Provisions limiting or excluding damages
Presumption of cumulative remedies
Exclusions of consequential damages
Limits and exclusivity of indemnity remedies
Challenges involving indemnity and other related provisions
