Legal Opinion Letters: Drafting Best Practices for Transactional Lawyers
Blank Rome partner Heather Sonnenberg will serve as faculty for the American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education (“ALI CLE”) webinar, Legal Opinion Letters: Drafting Best Practices for Transactional Lawyers, being held April 10, 2023, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. EDT, as a live webcast.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Drafting a legal opinion requires specialized due diligence and legal research, often while under a tight time constraint as the clock ticks and the pressure builds to get the deal finalized. Careful consideration must be given so that the information detailed in the legal opinion letter is not only in accordance with the sometimes-vague rules of customary practice, but also does not render an opinion that will mislead the recipient.
This 60-minute program will explain the language used and best practices regularly followed by lawyers in rendering and receiving basic opinions given in most corporate and unsecured banking transactions. Faculty will provide instructions to those giving and receiving third-party legal opinions and explain the functions of such opinions in a transaction.
