Gender-Inclusive Drafting in Tents_Presentation_June 20 2024

This program addressed gender-inclusive drafting in transactional documents.  It discussed best practices such as avoiding such gendered terms as “husband” or “wife” in favor of terms like “spouse,” scrutinizing documents for gendered language (such as “man-made” or “gentleman’s agreement”), and using the singular “they” where referring to an individual whose gender is unknown or when discussing a generic person. Presented by Joel Kwan and Michelle Yang of Paul Hastings, Ari Linder of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, and Boudewijn Smit of NautaDutilh.
