Drafting Liquidated Damages Clauses
Thursday, January 14, 2021/10:00 AM
Liquidated damages clauses are a risk allocation tool used across business, commercial, real estate and sometimes employment agreements. On the occurrence of certain carefully defined triggering events, the breaching party is liable for the liquidated damages amount. Triggering events run the gamut from failure to deliver marketable products on a timely basis to early termination of an employment contract. Though these clauses are intended reduce the risk of post-closing litigation over damages, the scope of damages is not always knowable at closing and poorly drafted clauses may cause more litigation. This program will provide you a real world guide to the essential elements of enforceable liquidated damages clauses.

Those provisions may include restrictions on usage, insurance requirements, more thoroughgoing inspections or other restrictions. This program will provide you with a guide to drafting and negotiating leases when a landlord has a risky tenant, with an emphasis on offsetting or compensation for that additional risk.
