You Work with Contracts in India? I’d Like to Hear from You

I’ve previously announced that 4 October 2018 I’ll be giving a “Drafting Clearer Contracts” seminar in Mumbai with Asian Legal Business. (For more information, go here.)

I’ve had very little contact with India over the years. In 2017 I played a tiny part in a contract-drafting competition run by an Indian law school. Also in 2017, I wrote this post in response to an inquiry from a young Indian lawyer about how to review the other side’s draft contract. And in this 2012 post I wasn’t particularly complimentary about standards of Indian drafting.

Given that my Mumbai seminar is only a couple of months away, I’d be interested to hear from readers based in India. Do contracts matter in India? Will my approach to contract language be welcome in India? What should I bear in mind when preparing for my seminar? Is my seminar being appropriately marketed? Do you think it’s competitively priced? Heck, do I even have any readers in India!

Let me know what you think.
