“Excellent knowledge. Great tips on the applications needed and the language used in each country. All are great at engaging class participation [and] I really enjoy how they discussed what is ideal in negotiation and what actually happens [and] how the law is upheld and what standard practises are in the real world.”
Vivian Punzalan, ProperVu Inc.
“Tremendous content and presentation.”
Kevin Wentzel, Counsel, Pivotal Software, Inc.
“This is an excellent program [and] all the information was very useful. It covers clauses and details that lawyers generally take for granted. There were a lot of practical examples used. For example, in the royalties section, it really helped to get an auditor’s point of view. I believe this is extremely important for lawyers as it helps us understand the practical aspects related to payments.”
