However, while they may be technically proficient, are they legally astute enough to understand the liabilities and consequences of the contracts they are signing on behalf of the company? 
Over the last five years, this Masterclass has trained hundreds of managers and directors from the some of the smallest to largest of companies in Singapore on the fundamentals of contract law. The Masterclass is unique because of the trainer’s, James Monteiro, ability to simplify complex legal concepts into practical and meaning insights.

They will also have the opportunity to seek the opinion of a highly experienced lawyer on specific issues or challenges they may be currently facing and receive a quick simple solution – without paying for the advice.

Legal advice and litigation is expensive, and of limited applicability when a problem occurs.
