Smith Moore Leatherwood is hosting the ACC Charlotte Chapter Meeting on Thursday, May 22 from 4-5 p.m. A reception will follow with beer, wine and appetizers. Smith Moore Leatherwood attorneys Rob Marcus and Fred Wood will speak at the event, as well as Virginia Daly from Polypore International.
The meeting is entitled, “Helpful Hints for Drafting Forum Selection Clauses and Integration Clauses to Avoid Litigation.” This will be a panel presentation addressing the drafting of commercial agreements, specifically the integration clause and forum selection clause. The presentation will discuss the problems associated with no forum selection clauses or poor forum selection clauses and tips on how to do them well, and drafting guidelines for integration clauses and how to avoid the fraud in the inducement exception to the parole evidence rule. Many people tend to think of these two provisions as merely boilerplate, but they can have significant implications should a dispute arise.
1 hour of general, North Carolina CLE credit is pending approval.
