This "back-to-basics" webinar will clarify some of the more involved contractual terms.
It is intended to give practitioners a refresher on terms they may not use as frequently, such as limitation of liability, hardship clauses, choice of law and its repercussions, penalty clauses/forfeiture clauses, the in duplum rule, and so on.
