Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Course?

All business relationships are essentially contracts, and a comprehensive understanding of contract law in the international context, and its commercial application, are essential elements in the effective management of the business to business interface. Contracts are becoming increasingly complex, and as trade becomes ever more international, the differences in approach between different legal systems, and contracting strategies, become greater issues.

All business professionals need to understand both their own and the other party’s rights and responsibilities under the contract, and their relationship with third parties. Good contract management is a core competency of successful organisations. The effective expenditure of money and resources is dependent on successful contract management activities: selecting the appropriate models, understanding the legal principles of creating a contract, managing each party’s rights and obligations, and dealing with claims and disputes are all key areas within this discipline.

The course will look at the following key areas:

  • International model forms and contracting strategies – types, uses and risks
  • Different legal systems and laws
  • Principal rights and responsibilities of each contracting party – legal and risk issues and their management
  • Finance issues and security measures
  • Remedies and dispute resolution
