6 thoughts on “Draft Koncision FAQs”
I don’t think you answered the first question.
also, I would add a question: “Is the confidentiality agreement the only template available for the time being?”
and, “Is my information secure?”. I remember a previous post where you recommend that users should not use confidential information while filling out your templates.
Thanks and keep it up. I follow you via RSS, and your input has made a difference to my firm’s legal writing (we are in Mexico and sometimes have to draft contracts in English, and since legal English is so “complicated”, you’re blog(s) have been of great help).
Cecilia: Thanks to your prodding, I added something at the end of what is now the second question.
Regarding security, see the fourth question down under “Completing the Questionnaire.”
And I’m pleased that you’ve found my stuff useful.
Here’s a question I suspect you’re going to get:
What if I don’t like how your standard template addresses an issue? Can I change the template?
Chris: I’ve added your question: it’s the fourth one down under “The Confidentiality-Agreement Template.” Thanks for the suggestion. Ken
Ken, I know you are focusing your energy on Koncision’s debut, but I hope that once Koncision is successful (as I’m sure it will be), you’ll continue to feature blog posts on effective drafting.
I enjoy the hearty discussions you engender. Even though I’m a litigator and not an M&A attorney, I find your insight useful (e.g., drafting good discovery requests).
Gus: Rest assured that I’ll be back, more pointy-headed than ever! Ken
