How to Understand & Negotiate Effective Business Agreements

When: TBD
Where: Nath & Associates
Cost in advance: $ 20 members, $ 30 guests
Cost at the door: $ 30 members, $ 40 guests

Business agreements are a part of almost every professional relationship, structure and transaction.  They can be confusing, perplexing, and even frustrating.  Not understanding the key rules, concepts and language in these agreements can cost you time, money, and even relationships.  Effective agreements and negotiation strategies can prevent many of these potentially adverse consequences.  This presentation and interactive workshop will take (some) of the mystery and intrigue out of business agreements and negotiation. 

You will learn:

  • Key terms and conditions found in most business agreements including: Employment and termination agreements, Joint venture and other “partnering” agreements, Confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements, Sales agreements, and Basic licensing agreements 
  • Tips for reviewing and crafting situation-specific contracts
  • How to protect your business from common contract pitfalls
  • Effective negotiation tactics including - what to ask (and not ask) for, when to say “no” and “yes,” and how to reach “win-win” agreements

Under the guidance of experienced intellectual property attorneys, Gary Nath and David Starr, this promises to be a hands-on learning experience no entrepreneur should miss.
