Winning the Battle of the Forms
One Hour – 9 am PT/ 12 pm ET
Whenever companies buy or sell products without a “master agreement” in place, and both buyer and seller submit their forms to the other, they are doing business on a ‘battle of the forms” basis.
In that case: Has a contract been formed? If so, whose terms govern? How do you resolve discrepancies between the buyer’s and seller’s forms? What is the best way to fight the battle of the forms….to win? What can we do to avoid disputes arising from the “battle”?
Attorney Leslie Marell will discuss these and other issues in this one hour webinar designed to demystify this confusing area of contract law and provide a practical approach to avoiding disputes and “winning” the battle.
