Boilerplate clauses are often overlooked in commercial transactions. Sometimes they are not negotiated at all. But when things go wrong, boilerplate clauses are often central to the dispute and their interpretation can be crucial when determining rights.
The English courts have recently considered a number of issues relating to key boilerplate clauses. We will look at the following:
- Penalty clauses
- Reasonable and best endeavours clauses
- Entire agreement clauses
- The effectiveness of so-called "no oral modification" clauses
During the seminar we will review recent case law, provide practical tips on how to interpret key boilerplate clauses and consider how to avoid common pitfalls that can arise.
