Ever signed a contract not knowing what a Force Majeure means? Unsure if the indemnity clause is fair to you? Lawyer Roland Samosir will go over strategies that SEPs/Freelancers can use when they are faced with difficult clauses in contracts.
Participants will go over 1 or 2 commonly disputed clauses with an eye towards applying the techniques shown. Participants will be encouraged to bring examples of difficult clauses to the workshop.
Roland is a qualified Singapore lawyer who has been in legal practise and in in-house legal counsel roles throughout his 30+ years career. He is currently the Head of Legal, Risk & Compliance of the Youngone Group. He has been involved in the Arts since his university days at NUS, taking on the roles of actor, soundman and stage manager in various productions. He knows that legal jargon, especially in contracts, can be confusing. Hoping that his legal training and involvement in the Arts could come in useful, he tries to demystify contracts to those who would listen to him, making contracts more understandable and manageable to those in the Arts.
