The ICC Institute of World Business Law is organizing a four-day PIDA training programme on negotiating and drafting contracts to help legal directors, corporate counsel, lawyers and other legal professionals avoid the pitfalls in international contract drafting.

"This PIDA training programme dealing with negotiation, drafting and resolving disputes in the context of international contracts is an excellent opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners and to exchange experiences with other colleagues from around the world,” said Jose Rosell, Partner, Hughes Hubbard and Reed, France and Chairman for the seminar.

“The programme has been structured in two parts in order to combine both theoretical and practical aspects, using a mock case based on a pathological international construction contract,” Mr Rosell added.

The training, to be held in Paris from 14 to 17 February, will focus on the main problems that arise in international contracts, with particular attention given to avoiding disputes.
 Drafting international contracts can be tricky and requires special skills and techniques to avoid loopholes that can eventually lead to serious problems, according to ICC.

To ensure an interactive discussion and small working groups for the study of the mock case, the training is limited to around 50 participants. Early booking is recommended.

A masterclass on the Incoterms® Rules 2010 will follow the PIDA training seminar on 17 and 18 February. A discount is available for participants who wish to register for both trainings. 

The course can be credited towards training under the “taxe de formation professionelle” in France. It has also received the official CNB approval. Participants are eligible for 23.5 CLE credits under New York’s approved jurisdiction procedures, 19.5 MCLE credits under the State Bar of California, and 19.5 CPD hours under the Law Society of the Bar of England and Wales.
