Webinar Description

Most in-house counsel learn how to redline contracts while on the job, instead of in classroom or formal training program. This lack of uniformity across the redlining process leads to inefficiencies and frustrations that can be avoid by adopting a uniform, streamlined redlining process. In her book, Contract Redlining Etiquette, Nada Alnajafi outlines 10 powerful contract redlining best practices that have become the new status quo.

In this presentation, Nada will show you how these smarter redlining practices can:

  • Improve your negotiation power and speed up contract closing times;
  • Help you manage internal negotiations and build alignment with internal business clients; and
  • Solve some common issues within the redlining process.

Attendees will receive a free whitepaper outlining the 10 rules of Contract Redlining Etiquette!
