Introduction to Contract Law : What Every Financial officer should know about

James Ottavio Castagnera, J.D., Ph.D., has spent nearly 30 years practicing, writing about, and teaching law. He has been a faculty member at several institutions and a communication director at an R1 university, and is currently a key administrator at Rider University.

The purpose of this webinar training is to provide an overview of the basic principles of contract law. What Every Financial officer should know about.
The financial officer is often the company's only defense against what can potentially turn out to be crippling contract errors and omissions. This is particularly true in organizations with small or no in-house legal staff. In such situations, in addition to the many “hats” they already wear, the financial officer may also be required to function as in-house counsel.

Starting with a few fundamental concepts – offer, acceptance, consideration – the webinar moves quickly to more sophisticated contract elements, such as warranties and indemnifications. Of high utility to many participants will be a focus on when a contract has been fully formed. This emphasis goes to the common concern of many financial officers with the timely –but not premature –authorization of commissions, progress payments, installment fees, and other obligations contingent upon complex terms and conditions. Ultimately the success of the business may depend on the financial officer’s understanding of contract law and how it applies to the organization’s day-to-day dealings.

Please join Dr. James Castagnera, attorney at law, as he discusses the kinds of legal issues that regularly challenge financial officers and offers guidance for avoiding such problems and how to deal with them when they arise
