Parts 3 and 4 of our podcast series on How International Companies Can Avoid Key Legal Mistakes in Doing Business in the U.S. are now available. In Part 3, we discuss why U.S. contracts are so long (in general, the freedom of contract generally favored in the U.S. includes with it the responsibility to consider and negotiate provisions carefully, and the failure to do so can create risks). We also discuss important legal provisions in contracts, including getting paid and delivery terms.
In Part 4, we continue the discussion of important legal terms that are frequently overlooked or misunderstood, including warranties, indemnities, termination provisions, and dispute resolution provisions.
The podcasts are available on iTunes (search "ctflegal" and download or subscribe), the firm's website, http://www.ctflegal.com/, or the firm's podcast page, http://www.ctflegal.blip.tv/.
We hope you will enjoy these and our other podcasts. Each podcast is actually a video podcast with slides that accompany the audio presentation.
