Professionals make decisions every day on behalf of their organizations. A good number of those transactions take place without a full appreciation of the nature and scope of the obligations. In addition, some of the agreements that are drafted following such decisions are either not properly crafted or crafted without fully considering the surround legal environment, thereby resulting in confusion and difficulty in fulfilling the mutual obligations.
