English contract law update:

The law that every aviation lawyer and commercial negotiator needs to know:

  • Supreme Court guidance on interpreting contracts (impact of Arnold v Brittan)
  • Forming binding contracts: challenges of ‘commitment letters’, MOUs and letters of intent (Pagnan, RTS, Barbudev, Vistajet, Alubaf)
  • Varying signed contracts: do formalities matter and when can they be waived? (Court of Appeal decisions - Reveille, TRW, Rock Advertising)
  • The battle over ‘good faith’: where it applies, and where courts are pushing back and rejecting its application (Cottonex, Globe Motors, Property Action Group)
  • English law and jurisdiction post-Brexit
