Contract “draftsmanship” is something of a lost art in a world where legal forms have become ubiquitous in the marketplace. Despite that, it is as important as ever for attorneys, especially in-house counsel, to adeptly navigate various contractual structures and help their clients avoid the many pitfalls associated with using boilerplate forms. This program, presented by Todd Kulkin, will provide practical advice to attorneys as to how to structure their agreements to hit the right deal points, mitigate risk for their clients, and set up their transactions for success
Todd Kulkin specializes in providing legal advice to small/medium sized businesses, start-ups, and non-for-profit organizations. He started his legal career at a large New York law firm. While working for that firm, his time was split between two practice areas: general liability defense and providing corporate and regulatory advice to major corporations. He uses his experience as a civil defense litigator to advise clients about their liability posture and how to mitigate. He left the firm to start his own practice in 2012 and, since then, has expanded his expertise to intellectual property and socially responsible entrepreneurship. Todd graduated with Honors from Brandeis University and with a J.D. in Financial Transactions from University at Buffalo (SUNY) School of Law.
