This program provides a practical guide to drafting for the assumption and limitation of liabilities in business and commercial transactions.

The program covers the mechanics of assuming debt in a transaction, how it is identified, negotiated and documented.

The program discusses the related issue of how “bad conduct” carve-outs in indemnification and other limitation of liability provisions can defeat limitations on liability if the carve-outs are not carefully drafted.

Successor liability in business transactions and techniques to avoid are also covered.

This program provides a real-world guide to handling debt and liabilities in transactions – identifying liabilities, negotiating and documenting their transfer or other treatment, and avoiding successor liability.

  • Identifying and documenting the assumption of liabilities
  • Successor liability and techniques to limit it
  • "Bad conduct" carve-outs in indemnification and limitation of liability
  • Risks of carve-out language being over-expansive and defeating liability protection
  • Mistakes in the treatment of liabilities in transactions
