From buying your coffee at Stewarts to the multi-million dollar sale of a publicly-traded corporation, the legal principals governing contracts are what define and control all business transactions. The contract is not limited to the written, multipage document with boilerplate language and a signature line at the end. Instead, believe it or not, every receipt, invoice, account statement, and, yes, even handshakes can be enforceable contracts that will govern your rights and obligations if a dispute or lawsuit is to arise in the future. This seminar will inform the business owner, manager, and/or employee of how to understand their obligations and the other party’s obligations in transactions for the sale and purchase of both goods and services.
