Limitation of liability and the UK MoD: everything you need to know

Limitation of liability goes to the heart of risk allocation and is one of the most important topics in any contract negotiation. The UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) has recently issued a revised commercial policy statement on limitation of liability (Version 3.0, 3 February 2021) which marks a radical shift from the previous one.

Following on from our recent Aviation & Defence webinar on limitation of liability, in this session we will do a deep dive into:

  • The MoD’s commercial policy statement – what does it mean for your negotiations, and will you now be able to achieve a limitation on liability in your contracts?

  • What risks can be capped under English law business to business contracts?

  • What types of risk would commonly remain uncapped, and how can you mitigate these risks?

  • What are the links between limitation of liability, insurance and indemnities and how should this be analysed?

The event is part of Bird & Bird's Defence & Security programme: a forum for members of the industry to hear about the latest industry trends and developments, share common experiences and challenges and learn from peers.

We aim to make these sessions lively and engaging, and we look forward to hosting you!

Please feel free to forward the invitation on to any other colleagues who may be interested in attending.

WebEx details will be provided in the confirmation email.
