This month, we are delighted to be working once more with leading law firm BDB Pitmans for a myth-busting session on commercial contracts. 

If you’ve always thought that contracts must be signed, that they are always enforceable and they can always be terminated, then this webinar is for you. This focused session will highlight the red flags that all business owners and managers must be aware of before entering into any contractual relationship.

Our speaker for this event is Zachary Proffitt, a solicitor in BDB Pitmans’ commercial team. Experienced in a wide variety of contractual matters across public and private sectors, Zachary’s work includes framework agreements for the supply of goods and services, online terms and conditions, sponsorships and non-disclosure agreements.

Zachary will explain the five fundamentals of what constitutes a contract before revealing the truth behind the six most common contract myths. He will share recent experiences when advising some of his clients and the potential consequences that these negotiations could have on the businesses.

This one hour Zoom event is free for any business to attend. A 30-minute presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session. Simply register here for joining instructions.
