No Contract? No Problem!

When commercial arrangements break down, your natural instinct may be to turn to contract law to identify remedies to assist. However, in circumstances where no contract exists with a potential counter-party, or the remedies set out in your contract are limited, what other avenues might be open to you for recourse? In this session we will:

  1. Identify circumstances in which a contractual claim may not be available;
  2. Use case studies to explore alternative, tort-based causes of action (including economic torts, conspiracy and breach of confidence); and
  3. Look at the different considerations which apply when pursuing a non-contractual claim in the UK courts (including jurisdiction/governing law issues and alternative measures of damages)
