In a contract, a simple term or phrase can change the meaning and terms of the entire agreement. And if you’re not sure what you’re looking at, you could very well miss important provisions that could put your business in jeopardy. This could lead to unintended risk and even devastating financial losses.

In this webinar, Deborah Verdile, Esq., Senior Legal Editor at Thomson Reuters Practical Law, gives a crash course in potential business contract pitfalls. This webinar takes a look at common--and, often, problematic--contract clauses for small businesses.
