Your report is a business report that takes account of the legal advice you have read along with the company information you have otherwise been provided. Your job, accordingly, is to
1. Summarize the substance and conclusion attorney’s memo so that Olivia doesn’t have to read it.
2. Describe, as best you understand them, the likely business and legal consequences of breaching the Earth Foods contract.
3. Describe, as best you understand them, the likely business and legal consequences of NOT breaching the Earth Foods contract.
4. Make recommendations on what you think Olivia ought to do as a business matter. Are there other possible solutions than the binary presented in #2 and #3? Is there some way to negotiate an accommodation with Earth Foods? Part 4 is your chance to think outside the box and be creative.
Create four major headings in your report for these areas of substance. The headings should be clear and useful to your reader (e.g., “Summary of Legal Analysis on Contractual Excuses”).
The purpose of this assignment is not for you to mimic the lawyer. The purpose of this assignment is for you to account for the lawyer’s findings and your company’s business concerns in looking for a solution.
ANSWER the 4 questions and instructions on page 106. The APPENDIX B is your materials that you will use to write the paper.
