About this Webinar

Commercial contracts are the foundation for the transactions between your business and your customers, suppliers and other
stakeholders. A solid understanding of key commercial clauses, as well as changes to those clauses which occurred in 2020, is
important in order for your business to negotiate future transactions with confidence. In this highly interactive workshop designed for an Invest Ottawa audience (Teach, Talk, Try), MDK lawyers will share their knowledge around:

  • It’s your duty! Negotiating in good faith
  • Must-make changes to your “boilerplate” language
  • Avoiding yet another draft – what are the most negotiated parts of a SaaS subscription agreement
