A contract is only as good as it is enforceable and, on breach, as good as a party can recover damages.  Damages are complex business. There are issues of what type of damages – compensatory, consequential, non-economic – are available, which often turns on the type of underlying contract, its express terms, and the limitations of law. There are also issues of the measure of those damages – how much can a party recover?  Planning also plays an important party, including the use of liquidated damages provisions and techniques for enhancing their enforceability, such as the use of personal guarantees, liens or escrow arrangements. Closely related to damages are equitable remedies - specific performance or even rescission. This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting contract remedies to limit damages or enhance collectability.
