About this event

Go to event website icon_popup

Many of us unwittingly enter into contracts every day of our lives – when we leave our car in a car park, when we take a train or bus journey or when we shop. Entering into a business contract is altogether more complex and the implications of getting it wrong can have far reaching effects on the profitability of your business.


  • Understand the origin and legal reasoning behind many of the contract clauses and terminology you use and understand why terms are couched in the way they are.
  • Be better prepared to write and negotiate contract arrangements that provide sufficient protection to your company.
  • Understand some of the core doctrines within English contract law such as the sanctity of contract, the privity of contract, the concept of reasonableness and how these have adapted over recent years.
  • Identify the critical elements required to create a legally binding contract enforceable by law.
  • Avoid ‘Battle of the Forms’ disputes.
  • Recognise the difference between a condition and a warranty and the differing remedies that may apply in the event of a breach of contract.
  • Understand the legality of exclusion and limitation clauses.
  • Understand contract performance, discharge and breach clauses.
  • Recognise the different situations which may lead to early contract termination, such as frustration, repudiation and rescission.
