By the end of the course delegates will have a firm grasp of the underpinning legal principles of contract law and how contracts with guarantors and indemnifiers can be set aside in certain circumstances. Delegates will have a firm grasp of the documentation required to issue litigation proceedings against potential bad debts on the ledger, or for pursuing cases of fraud.
