Advanced Legal Drafting

Bryan Garner

Our seminar on drafting contracts and other legal instruments will help even the most experienced transactional lawyers improve their contracts and other legal instruments — both stylistically and substantively. Highlights of the course include:

  • How to avoid the most commonly litigated ambiguities
  • How to structure complex provisions to make them more readable
  • Why it’s important to edit inherited forms, even “recommended” ones
  • When to use shall, must, and will — words that often bring grief to the parties
  • How to revise a contract efficiently with our proven step-by-step method

Although the main focus is on various types of contracts — such as commercial leases, loan documents, and license agreements — we can, depending on your needs, shift the focus to other areas, such as legislative drafting or securities disclosure documents.
