Third Toronto “Intensive Contract Drafting Workshop”

On Monday, April 30th and Tuesday, May 1st, I’ll be in Toronto giving my third “Intensive Contract Drafting Workshop,” as usual under the auspices of Osgoode Hall Law School’s Professional Development Program.

As in the previous workshops, the first day is entitled “Language and Layout” and will deal with topics addressed in MSCD. But I’ve changed day two, which is now entitled “The Structure of M&A Contracts.” We’ll spend the morning and part of the afternoon discussing the topic generally. Then teams of participants will review and negotiate an acquisition agreement. We’ll end the day by going over issues encountered in the negotiation sessions.

In the previous workshops a large part of day two was devoted to structural issues, but I’ve decided it’s worth devoting an entire day to. I’m close to wrapping up what I like to think is an innovative an article on the subject, and it makes sense for me to focus on topics where I can add the most value.
