Good contracts are an excellent form of risk management. Bad contracts can exacerbate your exposure to risk or infect your business with new risks. But who decides between good and bad, and how do you measure the difference between slightly risky and catastrophic? Risk scoring is the answer. By defining an approach to scoring and measuring contractual risk, you can finally expose and manage the dangers lurking inside thousands of documents.

By flushing out the weak links, you will decrease your chances of fines, disputes, costs and reputational damage. In this panel discussion, learn what risk scoring means, how to get started, how it will help your business improve its financial performance and health, and best practices for designing and developing a method of your own.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on January 29th, 2019.
