Course Description

This program was recorded on May 28, 2021

Ensuring contracts are well written, cover all potential contingencies, and address potential disputes before they arise are the best way to reduce future legal fees and costs. Many cannabis and hemp entrepreneurs forego written contracts reviewed by counsel in favor of a handshake deal or forms found on LegalZoom or Nolo.com, only to learn after a dispute arises that the form contract or statutory presumptions imposed on oral contracts do not at all align with their understanding of the deal. This CLE will discuss simple, cost effective ways to avoid painful, protracted, and costly litigation at the negotiation and drafting stage of any commercial contract, including how to persuade smaller start-up clients to participate in this important process.
