Ethics in Contracting Issues

Using hypotheticals, this presentation focuses on a number of ethics issues that might arise in contracting situations. Can lawyers take advantage of privileged communications the adversary inadvertently sends them? Can lawyers receiving electronic documents look for hidden metadata the other side has not scrubbed? What duties do lawyers have in representing contracting parties, with regards to disclosing client confidences to prevent the adversary from being deceived about the clients' intent, or to correct the adversary's misunderstanding about the law, the contract's terms, or the adversary's scriveners error?

Drafting for LLCs, LPs, and Partnerships: Model Agreements, Key Considerations and Practical Tips to Avoid Litigation

Session 1: Keeping Your Contract Out of the Courtroom: Contractual Rules for Drafting Partnership and Operating Agreements, Including a Helpful Checklist - Under the Texas Business Organizations Code, partnership and company agreements are powerful contractual tools for establishing the relationship among the partners or members and their organizations. Because partnership and company agreements serve such an important role in establishing these relationships, errors in the drafting of those agreements can create profound problems in the relationship of the partners or members. Explore techniques and rules to assist with drafting partnership and operating agreements in order to avoid those problems and potential litigation. Session 2: Model Agreements for Closely Held LLC’s - Company agreements for LLC’s come in all shapes and sizes and it is sometimes hard to know where to turn to create an operating agreement for a new LLC. Hear a discussion presenting three model agreements tailored for a closely held company and walk you through decisions that the authors made in drafting the agreements to help improve your drafting skills and result in better operating agreements. ​Session 3: Ambiguous, Omitted, and Inconsistent Provisions in Partnership and Company Agreements: Approaches and Examples (Plus Bonus Discussion: Force Majeure in Texas) - Even though advisors put a lot of energy into drafting partnership or operating agreements, it seems that when a dispute or need for interpretation arises every agreement has ambiguities, omissions, or inconsistencies. A commercial litigator and transactional business organizations lawyer discuss how they address these contractual infirmities and how they may be avoided in future transactions, and will explore Texas law related to force majeure clauses. ​Session 4: Charging Orders - A charging order is a court-authorized lien imposed by a creditor on distributions made from an LLC or a partnership. Examine drafting considerations that might affect how an entity and its management are equipped to deal with charging orders. ​Session 5: Letters of Intent and Side Letters (Enterprise Products) - On January 31, 2020, the Texas Supreme Court issued its opinion in Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. v. Enterprise Products, L.P., an important case about when a business relationship is deemed to be a partnership under Texas law. Learn about this case and what it means for structuring and drafting agreements for business relationships.

    A PPT to download for the AI portion would be nice to have. The use of hypos during the Disruptive Tech course was a good learning tool.

    These are thought provoking topics. The AI topic in particular merits extended treatment and may be worth expanding into a larger, more comprehensive program with several segments relating to different aspects of the issue. With respect to the specifics of the course, it would be good to have both the slides and the video available for reference.

    Second presentation (disruptive tech) was more useful than the first. AI lecture seemed to be mostly about AI itself.

    Well-done, but please turn OFF computer sounds (alerts, etc.) while presenting - - the beeps and chimes during the session were distracting.

    It was great but his email delivery signal kept going off throughout. I wish he had silenced that before he started.

    There was a glitch in the audio and constant bells sounding throughout the presentation that were distracting.
