The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) will organize a training focusing on the skills of negotiating and drafting a contract of quality on 20-23 April 2015.

Taking place in the heart of Paris at the ICC Hearing Centre, the event will be held under the auspices of the ICC Institute of World Business Law, a prestigious think-thank providing research and training on international business law.

The event will bring together legal directors, practising lawyers, legal practitioners and business professionals involved in international trade and dispute resolution who will have the opportunity to learn how to manage post-contracts and deal with different kinds of conflict resolution.

Mohammed Chemloul, Partner, Chemloul et Associes, Algeria, and Chair of the training, said: “It is essential for any legal and business professional to master the drafting of a high-quality, international contract. This allows to preserve the long-term relationship of parties and avoid common errors that are made when cross-border clauses are drafted in a sloppy manner.

Thanks to the diversity of participants’ cultural backgrounds, trainees will also understand the importance of cultural and legal differences to avoid misunderstandings in an international context.”
