Who should attend?

This seminar is designed to assist the professional in understanding the basic principles behind managing risk under the Common Law system in international contract and negotiation situations. It follows on from the first seminar on contracts "Vertragsrecht und Vertragsgestaltung auf Englisch (International Common Law Contracts)".

What will be covered?

What is liability? The seminar starts off with an analysis of the types of liability incurred before contract formation in negotiation situations, ranging from collateral contracts to the use of promissory estoppel and misrepresentation. The discussion then moves to the liability arising in relation to the various boilerplate provisions of contracts. The emphasis is on giving participants a practical understanding of the difficulties associated with limitation of liability clauses and their interpretation and application.

What are the key aspects?
  • Warranties and guarantees, penalties, liquidated damages

  • Representations and warranties, entire agreement/integration, (limitation of) liability

  • Retention of title, novation and assignment

  • Indirect and consequential damage, the pitfalls of drafting

 

Participants are encouraged to bring their own examples of international contracts-texts for discussion and analysis. Examples are provided of key boilerplates clauses, as well as template contracts and suggestions are made on strategies for managing contract liability and various extracontractual issues such as the use of LOl, MOU and precontractual documentation.

This seminar is held in English, any questions or queries can be answered in German.
