BGS Attorney Carole Clark Isakson Presents at the Minnesota CLE Center

July 7, 2023  |  Carole Clark Isakson

Promissory Estoppel? Liquidated Damages? If you attended a seminar by BGS Attorney Carole Clark Isakson this week, you know what those are.

Ms. Isakson was one of several presenters on June 27, 2023 at the Minnesota CLE center, all of whom had contributed materials to The Complete Lawyer’s Quick Answer Book.  Carole spoke about contract law, an area in which she has been working for more than three decades. Attendees learned about the elements of a contract, what constitutes an offer and acceptance, and how courts in Minnesota interpret contracts.  When do emails and conversations impact how a contract is interpreted? This depends in part on the contract terms.  Most likely is that prior conversations about the contract terms will not be persuasive if they contradict the terms of a contract that was then signed. She also spoke about breach of contract cases and how one can prevail or defend those claims. Tips for solid contract drafting were provided to the audience; a well drafted contract is the best defense against any type of claim based on the contract.  State law requires that some types of contracts be in writing to be enforceable or provide a party with the ability to void a contract that is not in writing.

BGS is proud to provide speakers to many educational events for lawyers, clients and the public.
