This briefing takes into account relevant legislation and case law. For all points of the law and critical distinctions, you will find crystal-clear explanations and guidelines to a host of case studies illustrating the law and its application.

When you sit down to draft a contract today you have to think of so many issues. For example, more cases are now being argued with reference to the Human Rights Act: how might your contract be interpreted in the light of it and what are the dangers of infringing it? The distinction between exclusions of liability and limits of liability can cause problems, as of course can the difference between best endeavors and reasonable endeavors. These and many other vital questions are all covered in this expert Briefing.
