The panel of speakers, eminent English barristers and solicitors (including Nicholas Stewart QC, Samantha Davies, Serena Hedley-Dent and solicitors/lawyers from Farrer & Co, Berwin Leighton Paisner and other firms), will:
· Ÿintroduce participants to the basic principles of English Contract Law
· Ÿexplain the most common terms to be found in all contracts, highlighting their practical implications
· Ÿwarn of potential pitfalls – including guidance as to whether there is a contract or not and to avoid exposing clients unintentionally to legal liabilities
· Ÿanalyse some of the problems in performance which may affect clients' entitlements or responsibilities under the contract – with particular reference to breach of contract and the remedies available.
There will be a session in which civil lawyers working in London (Gregor Kleinknecht and Ignacio Corbera Dale) comment on English Contract Law, and two final practical drafting sessions on drafting watertight commercial agreements in English under English Law.
