Negotiating Your Professional Services Agreement:  The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

In this free webinar, we will discuss the importance of a well-drafted professional services agreement. We will talk about some of the critical risk management provisions that should be addressed in all professional services agreements and discuss ways to deal with poorly drafted provisions proposed by clients.

  • Discuss the importance of contract negotiations and insight that may be gained from the process;
  • Identify important contract provisions that are frequently the subject of difficult negotiations;
  • Consider the risk management implications associated with poorly worded provisions and ways to modify the language; and
  • Learn about the potential advantages associated with favorably-drafted provisions.


This series is being presented in partnership with the IEEE Member Discounts Program.
