Getting a sale of business contract right is an essential practitioner skill. It is important both parties know exactly what they are getting on signing. This session looks at drafting essentials for complex clauses:

  • Obtaining the right information as a drafting aid

  • Exactly what are you selling – sale of business or the asset structure?

  • Disclosure and confidentiality obligations – the what, who and where

  • Payment arrangements – method and timing

  • Earn outs and deferred payment arrangements

  • Structuring warranties and indemnities – reflecting the due diligence process

  • Intellectual property clauses that work

  • Adjustment clauses – interest and price changes

  • The non-compete restraint – the question of reasonableness

  • Case study – Examining the restraint and an example of bespoke drafting

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
