Date: Friday 29 July 2022
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

They might be called MOU’s, letters of intent or heads of agreement, but it’s the intention and content that matter when drafting preliminary documents rather than the title. This session will provide a comprehensive guide to drafting documents intended to form the basis of a further agreement, including:

  • Assessing and defining purpose and intention - why it matters
  • How comprehensive should the document be? Is a non-disclosure agreement a viable alternative?
  • Considerations for establishing and recording:
  • a framework for ongoing negotiations
  • key terms
  • commitments and obligations
  • fundamental arrangements
  • When will an MOU be binding? Cases and examples for appropriate language and content
  • Factoring financial consequences into the timetable
  • Should the arrangement be made “subject to contract”?
  • Strategies for drafting for flexibility and options going forward
  • Drafting appropriate termination and dispute resolution processes
