Clark Hill Kicks Off Its 2017 In-House Counsel Webinar Series

DETROIT, MI – Clark Hill will kick off its 2017 In-House Counsel Webinar Series with the webinar Don’t Pull That Credit Report So Fast – The New Pitfalls of Employee Background Checks on Tuesday, January 17, 2017, from 12 pm to 1 pm EST.

An employee background check, in the form of pulling a candidate's credit report, is the cornerstone of a company’s due diligence. However, heightened regulatory scrutiny can make the simple task of pulling a credit report into a high-risk proposition that finds its way to the legal department. Clark Hill experts, Stephanie Rawitt and Joann Needleman, will break down for In-House Attorneys the necessary requirements a company must undertake in an investigation of a potential new hire, commencing with employer compliance with anti-discrimination laws and ban the box legislation, and concluding with guidance on the proper vetting of your service providers who may provide you with important credit information about your candidate.

Clark Hill Attorneys Joel D. Applebaum and Linda M. Watson to Present "Can You Really Anticipate Harm in Commercial Agreements?” on November 16, 2016

Detroit, MI – Clark Hill attorneys Joel D. Applebaum and Linda M. Watson will present “Can You Really Anticipate Harm in Commercial Agreements? Drafting Liability-Limiting Clauses” on November 16, 2016, the final webinar in Clark Hill’s In-House Council Webinar Series for 2016.

A contracting party, as a matter of law, is entitled to minimum adequate remedies to recover direct damages, regardless of what the contract provides. In other words, while reasonable agreements limiting or modifying remedies are to be given effect, a contract provision that completely deprives a party of any remedy is unenforceable.

This complimentary webinar is designed to provide in-house attorneys with real stories and lessons learned, as well as best practice tips in negotiating, drafting and enforcing liability limiting clauses in contracts.

The following topics are a sample of what will be covered:

  • Understanding the scope of contract damages
  • Negotiating, drafting, and enforcing remedy provisions
  • Traps surrounding consequential damages
  • The truth behind liquidated damages
  • The impact of indemnity and other related provisions
