DR Essentials Breakfast: How Not to Lose a Dispute Before it's Started - Effective DR provisions to bear in mind at the contract stage


Date: 22 November 2017
Time: 08.00 - 09.30    Venue: Bird & Bird, 12 New Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1JP


When negotiating and drafting commercial agreements, parties understandably focus on the key commercial terms and can pay little attention to the boilerplate or 'midnight' clauses usually found at the end of a long agreement. However, if the relationship breaks down, these clauses can be a key part of any subsequent dispute.

In this session we look at recent case law and our own experiences to identify the key risk areas - including choice of law, jurisdiction, notice provisions, execution, authority, and waiver – and offer some practical advice on how to minimise the risk of disputes for your business at the contractual stage.
