Why You Should Attend

Contract Preparation for Non-Lawyers

Sales professionals, buyers, program managers, and executives must understand the tangible and intangible factors that drive the business deal into the written contract. The contract is the legal document that captures the vision of the buyer and the commitments of the seller. Good contracts capture and enforce the needs of both parties throughout performance. Clear, consistent, successful contracts are well written and well prepared. Both parties contribute to a clear vision, measured expectations, and a long-term approach to the relationship and contract documentation. The outcome is a systematic approach that minimizes conflict and magnifies consensus so that both parties to the contract can be successful.
