Due to the challenge of potential risks and liabilities in drafting contracts, in addition to making contract renewals and negotiations, companies must ensure robust management throughout all stages of a contract. This marcus evans conference will bring together leaders in the Oil and Gas Industry who specialize in contract management, drafting and negotiation to examine the pitfalls in contract clauses that can lead to consequential losses.

Now more than ever, contract specialists and legal counsel managing contracts need to ensure that all the potential risks are addressed and allocated to avoid any potential disputes or liabilities.
