About the Course

This training program mainly aims to provide you with the required knowledge and skills to be able to draft and prepare most common types of commercial contracts (e.g. lease, franchise, SPAs, agency, distribution, etc.) and make you familiar with every part/section of those contracts. It further teaches you how to professionally include the needs, desires and interests of your client in the contract and how to make sure that the wording of the contract is favorable to your client.
