18th February 2020
Duration:  approx. 1 hour

You've spoken and we've listened. From 1/8/19 we've structured most of our webinars to run for one hour - the ideal length for staff training sessions. And, for most of you the webinars will be held at lunchtime - the ideal time for attending live webinars.

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
