Commercial Contracts for In-House Counsel
How to Effectively Negotiate a Limitation of Liability Clause

Event Description

The dreaded limitation of liability clause. It’s in most commercial contracts and is one of the most frequently negotiated legal clauses in a contract. You also get zero training at most law schools on how to draft and negotiate this clause. It’s an art to learn the dance of redlining and positioning, especially when it comes to this clause.

– How to approach a limitation a liability clause and handle difficult negotiations;
