View the live recording here of a webinar presented by Paul Loh and Ako Williams, who is vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary at Ushio America, Inc.
“Defying Convention: Unconventional Terms to Manage Litigation Risk,” hosted by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Solo & Small Firm Network, explains why following the conventional wisdom in contracts and going to arbitration may not actually be the wisest move.
Paul and Ako address how many contracting lawyers include binding arbitration clauses, attorneys’ fees clauses, etc., thinking that those terms are best for an organization. They contend that the conventional wisdom is wrong on conventional terms. Instead, there are numerous unique terms that few contract attorneys use that may actually be more effective than conventional terms in mitigating litigation risk. They provide real-life examples on how including unconventional terms in a company’s contracts will minimize the risk and maximize the outcome when faced with litigation.
