Nebraska Activity #133605, 1.0 hour CLE

Letters of intent frame a prospective transactional agreement.  They provide outline with considerable detail the substantive terms of the underlying agreement – price, reps and warranties, closing conditions, etc.  They also outline the process by which a definitive underlying agreement will be finalized.  Letters are not supposed to be definitive agreements themselves; not enforceable, only a substantial starting point.  But there is a certain point at which the detail in these letters becomes so definitive that they become enforceable.  This program will provide you with a drafter’s guide to the most important substantive and process terms of letters of intent, their uses and traps, including unexpected enforceability.

  • Drafting effective letters of intent in transactions
  • Purposes of letters, timing, relationship to diligence, exclusivity
  • Understanding the point at which letters of intent may be enforceable
  • Drafting substantive  terms v. process terms
  • Indemnity, hold back and limitation of liability provisions
  • Termination of a letter and survival of certain provisions
