On October 4, 2018 at WSBA CLE's education program, "Navigating the Trends in Commercial Contracting," Ada Danelo will discuss the differences between “commercially reasonable,” “best efforts” and similar terms; various jurisdictions’ interpretations of these terms; and alternatives in contract drafting and negotiating to avoid ambiguity.

About the program:
Several big trends are converging to reshape commercial contracting! This day-long education program hosted by WSBA-CLE and co-sponsored by the International Association for Contract & Commercial Management (IACCM) will address three of those trends:
- Global regulation in the form of the EU’s General Data Protection Rights laws
- Increasing reliance on high-risk, high-value contracts between companies
- Emergence of “simplified English” contracts
We will also examine drafting and negotiation techniques for IP clauses, and the duty to be forthright in negotiations, and will re-examine commercial standards.
As a co-sponsor, the IACCM will have a member and nonmember meeting during lunch, included in your tuition. Jim Bergman, IACCM Vice President, will facilitate the luncheon.
