Drafting International Commercial Agreements in English

Course Overview

PLEASE NOTE: THE VENUE FOR THE MARCH 2019 OUTING HAS NOW CHANGED TO THE REMBRANDT HOTEL

Most international agreements are drafted in the English language irrespective of the nationality of contracting parties. Language errors in the text and unclear and inconcise phrasing cause confusion and can ultimately lead to a dispute if they go unnoticed. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the common pitfalls, key areas of risk and up-to-date drafting techniques in English to ensure you protect your organisation against unnecessary risk.

  • Learn how to recognise drafting inaccuracies to effectively re-draft poorly written clauses
  • Draft effective standard clauses that can be used across the organisation to manage exposure to legal risk
  • Understand the principles of using plain English within your contract to reduce uncertainty
  • Focus on agreement structure, linguistic clarity and accuracy to draft with confidence
  • Discover how to avoid over complex sentences and structures to limit the risk of dispute
  • Develop more effective legal writing skills that can be used in all your business communications
  • Who should attend?
    • Lawyers working in industry and government
    • Lawyers in banks and financial institutions
    • Lawyers in private practice
    • Lawyers and corporate executives involved in the drafting of contracts in English

    This was a great training. Thanks to the speaker's interactive approach you have the opportunity to learn a lot on contract drafting, legal vocabulary, punctuation and grammar. Finishing touch are the proverbs. The training is useful for non-native speakers. Tips and tricks are included in the training material.
