Description

This CLE seminar helps the advanced lawyer identify and improve critical contract provisions in contracts. While this seminar utilizes the example of a Purchase and Sale Agreement, many of the contract provisions are capable of utilization in almost any contract.

In this session, we discuss pre-contract negotiations (Nondisclosure Agreements or “NDAs,” Letters of Intent or “LOIs,” Term Sheets, etc.), and the common terms found in them, which terms necessarily overlap into the actual formal contract. We then discuss the requirements necessary to form a valid contract, following by discussion of critical clauses essential for any great contract, including assignment rights, insurance obligations, indemnification clauses, liability limitations, how intellectual property is handled, breach, cure, remedies, anti-waiver provisions, jurisdiction, venue, severability provisions, attorney’s fees and costs, force majeure clauses, and so much more.

Lecturer Bio

Scott A. Mager, Esq.

Scott Mager is the Founding Partner of the Firm. Trademark suspenders can’t hold up all the trials he has won. He is the lawyer that other lawyers hire when it really matters. Scott has a passion for the art of trial advocacy and corporate representation that is almost as animated as his inspirational speaking engagements. Scott Mager is a nationally renowned Attorney that has received nationwide recognition for handling a variety of legal issues at the State, Federal and Supreme Court levels, including his involvement as counsel on the internationally covered “Baby T” case.

He has handled plaintiff and defense cases, represented all levels of clients, from individuals to multi-billion-dollar companies, and was recently honored by a multi-billion-dollar insurance conglomerate with the National Litigator of the Year – given to only one person per year. His most recent jury verdict was a $9.4 million-dollar verdict, including $1,000,000 in punitive damages.

Further illustrating the respect he has earned in his profession, he is one of the only attorneys asked to teach for two years at the prestigious Annual Florida Trial Judges Conference, and has been awarded the distinguished Eagle Talon Award, given “For Dedication to The Highest Ideals of The Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers.” He was also asked by the Florida Bar to serve as a lead Instructor for the Practice with Professionalism – the required course for every new attorney – for many years (training thousands of lawyers and others).

He has over 150 case summaries, articles and lectures to his credit, and has taught and lectured at a number of law schools, Ph.D programs, graduate and undergraduate programs. He has co-hosted/appeared on numerous television/radio broadcasts covering legal, motivation, and ethical issues.
