There are several provisions that will often fall under the "Miscellaneous" section or article of a contract, and therefore you may (erroneously) believe they contain boiler plate language not requiring much attention. To be clear, do not ignore or give little attention to these miscellaneous contractual provisions simply because they come at the end of the agreement. This two-part discussion reviews the meaning and importance of the "Miscellaneous" sections of a contract. In this instalment, the (1) Severability, (2) Notice, (3) Amendments and Waiver and (4) Counterparts, and (5) Construction/Headings clauses are discussed, and the next installment reviews the (6) Remedies, (7) Third Party Beneficiaries, (8) Assignment, and (9) Integration provisions of an agreement.
