Partner Jeff Soble will present a Strafford webinar titled “Manufacturing, Supply and Other Sales Agreements: A Roadmap for Avoiding Contracting Pitfalls” on Tuesday, February 3.

This CLE webinar will provide business counsel with a roadmap for drafting, negotiating and executing key provisions in manufacturing, supply and other sale of goods agreements. The panel will discuss clauses that should be included in the agreements and explain strategies for avoiding common contracting pitfalls.

Description

Drafting and negotiating sale of goods agreements often results in unanticipated mistakes, disputes and contractual breakdowns, presenting complex legal challenges for counsel to suppliers and buyers.

Common contracting errors include inadequate requests for quotations during pre-contracting, boilerplate clauses, conflicts in terms and conditions of the agreement (a.k.a. “the Battle of the Forms”), and failure to follow proper procedures when terminating the agreement.

Business counsel must understand and carefully construct provisions that anticipate and address common mistakes to effectively minimize risk for their clients. Counsel should also advise clients on best practices in managing the buyer-supplier relationship to mitigate mistakes and breakdowns.

Listen as our panel of attorneys experienced in negotiating sale of goods agreements discusses best practices for drafting and executing the contracts. The panel will discuss specific clauses that should be included in agreements and provide strategies for avoiding common negotiation pitfalls.

Outline

I. Understanding and mitigating pre-contracting mistakes
II. Identifying and minimizing common contracting mistakes
III. Assessing and avoiding supplier-buyer relationship mistakes
IV. Preserving value and limiting liability during contract termination

  • What are the key contract terms to include in sale of goods agreements? 
  • How can counsel for suppliers and buyers best mitigate risk when drafting and negotiating sale of good agreements? 
  • What are the most commonly disputed issues during contract negotiations and throughout the supplier-buyer relationship and what are some effective strategies for resolving them?
