This briefing ensures that businesses are put in a position where they can recover goods by judicious use of a well drafted “retention of title clause” and ensure their terms and conditions apply and form part of the contract between the parties.

Sadly many of the disputes that occurred during the recession have come about because one or other party did not get their commercial deal down in writing at the start. They started running a company without a shareholder agreement. Or they supplied goods without any terms and conditions in writing. Or they had terms but they omitted important legal issues. Often saving half an hour of a lawyer’s cost in the initial drafting stage means a company has 18 months of High Court litigation. This briefing will light the way on how to ensure you retain title to goods.
