ContractsCon is going on tour and it's going to be awesome!
In-house counsel and professionals don't have to wait until 2024 to experience the practical and fun training extravaganza that is ContractsCon.
How to Contract is partnering with global law firm Morrison Foerster to host four one-day ContractsCon events in 2023 for in-house counsel and professionals
We are bringing the practical training, fun, and friendship of ContractsCon to in-house counsel and professionals in San Francisco, New York, Boston and San Diego.
There will be lots of learning and laughs, plus the chance to connect with old friends and make new ones. Space is limited. Register now so you don't miss out on this incredible opportunity! You'll get the same focus on practical training in a fun format with lots of networking and connections.
If you attend one of our events, you'll benefit from:
- Practical training from partners at Morrison Foerster on key contract provisions you work on all the time
- A negotiation training session led by Laura Frederick
- Lots of opportunities and activities designed to connect you with other people from your community
- Pending three hours of CLE from the state in which the event will take place
- Access to recordings for 90 days after the event, including CLE credit if approved
- Optional small group dinners for those wanting to extend the conversations and fun after hours
We are holding these events at Morrison & Foerster's offices in each of these cities. These events are only for in-house counsel and professionals.
Each event will be hosted by Laura Frederick, Founder and CEO of How to Contract
Come meet Laura in person! In addition to hosting, Laura will be leading a negotiation training session in each city.

"Why is HTC partnering with with Morrison Foerster on these events?"
Here's what Laura Frederick shared:
"When I had the idea to take ContractsCon on tour and to partner with a global law firm to do it, I immediately thought, "MoFo."
There are lots of reasons for it.
First, I worked for five years in MoFo's Tech Transactions group in San Francisco, Hong Kong, and Singapore offices. (Fun fact - David Tollen also worked in MoFo's San Francisco office, but before my time.) So my connection with MoFo dates back to when I joined them in 2000. They taught me so much of what I know today.
Second, they get how to have fun and make jokes. You have to if your name is "MoFo." I needed a firm who would get that ContractsCon is not about stuffy traditional training found in so many CLE sesssions.
Finally, but most importantly, they are amazing lawyers. I've hired MoFo many times over the years when I needed the best outside counsel. I wanted to find lawyers whom I could trust to provide amazing training on complex nuances of contracts. I trust MoFo 100%."Learn more about Morrison Foerster
