Transactional Due Diligence and Disclosure Schedules
This class addresses the basics of corporate drafting, using a commercial contract as an example. The instructor will focus on technical skills and concepts such as the basic structure of a contract, the interplay of representations and warranties, covenants, and conditions, and drafting and negotiating boilerplate language.
Due diligence is a key piece of every corporate transaction. You'll learn how deal structure affects DD (and vice versa), what's in a standard DD checklist, issues to look for on both sides of the transaction, and practical tips on organizing and executing. Then you'll practice by modifying a DD template in the context of a simulated deal.
This class is suitable for attorneys who have a general interest in corporate and/or M&A transactions with some exposure to basic corporate transactions.
**It is recommended that participants complete AltaClaro’s Essentials of Contract Drafting (or otherwise have some basic exposure to contract basics as a junior attorney) prior to taking this course.
Upon completion of this Master Class, participants are able to:
- Prepare a basic due diligence checklist
- Organize the due diligence process

Participants are tasked with modifying a due diligence request template to confirm to the parameters of a specific deal being negotiated by the client.
