Mojahed Al Sebae, Partner at Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants, delivered a presentation to the student of the School of Business Administration (SBA) at the American University in Dubai (AUD), to improve their work-readiness.

As part of SBA’s mission to provide students with a ‘career-oriented business education, Al Sebae gave students a presentation titled “Practical Aspects Relating to Contracts’, in which he examined the three main key areas to focus on when entering into contracts. The issues are divided into categories: (1) key issues to consider prior to entering into a contract; (2) key issues when drafting, reviewing, commenting or advising on a contract; and (3) key issues to consider following the signing of a contract.

During the presentation, Al Sebae stressed the importance of knowing key laws and regulations governing the contract, its subject and its parties, as any violation may lead to the nullification of the contract.

“It is also important for the parties to identify and assess the risks associated with the contract and take the necessary measures to mitigate or deal with such risks. They should also put an exit strategy in place through which the contract may be terminated with the least possible loss and expense. Although this may not always be possible, it should always be considered,” Al Sebae explained.
