Mtg: Consultants’ Forum #1: The Contract

by @ 8:20 am. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Communications, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, NanoEngineering

TUESDAY November 18, 2008
SCV Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley
Speaker: Nina Yablok, Law Office of Nina Yablok
Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: KeyPoint Credit Union, 2805 Bowers Ave., Santa Clara
RSVP: not required

Consulting contracts are an important but often overlooked aspect of consulting work.? Going through a menu of contractual clauses, Nina Yablok will review major clauses that should appear in a consulting contract.? Attendees will gain an understanding of why each clause might be used, and what risks might be associated with deleting it.
Contracts will be looked at from the consultants’ standpoint, but standard customer-supplied clauses will also be examined.? The goal is to provide the ingredients for a contract that will reduce the consultant’s liability, reduce the risk of non-payment, make enforcement of payment as easy as possible, and not be so one-sided that the customer won’t sign it.
Participants are invited to bring examples of The Worst Contractual Clause Ever.? These clauses will likely fit the categories of Least Comprehensible and Most Unfavorable Terms Not Including Pricing.
This is the first in a new series called the Consultants’ Forum. This series will address the most important issues facing consultants’, particularly in consideration of the current economic climate.? The December forum will address Getting Paid and the January forum will address Marketing.
