Contract Drafting Basics, Part 2: Warranties, Covenants, & Indemnity
Following up on Part 1's discussion of the often overlooked "boilerplate" sections of a contract, this Part 2 installment in our "Contract Drafting Basics" series of seminars focuses on the do's and don'ts of including covenants, warranties, and representations in a typical contract. The presenter, Billy Newman, then moves into a discussion of the sometimes byzantine wording of indemnity and insurance provisions, including a practical look at the sort of "due diligence" investigations every lawyer and client should conduct before even thinking about entering into a contractual agreement.
