Webinar: Liability, Warranties, Assumption and Allocation of Risk

June 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Both parties have constraints and policy considerations in these areas that often differ and can cause challenges to negotiating agreements. Activities covered by contracts between industry and universities and…
