Banking Academy — Seminar on recent developments in English contract law


December 13, 2018

We are pleased to invite you to our Banking academy seminar on recent developments in English contract law. 

This seminar will discuss the way in which contracts are interpreted under English Law. The discussion will be structured around ten principles which, it is suggested, can help to explain the way in which the courts interpret contracts. 

The first session covers recent developments in English contract law. There have been some important recent cases about contractual provisions which we use a great deal in practice. They include variation clauses (clauses which limit the way the parties can amend their contracts) and exclusion clauses (clauses which limit the liability of the parties under the contract). There have also been some interesting developments in relation to penalties. 

The second session covers clauses in contracts which restrict the parties from assigning receivables due under the contract. They are valid at present, but the law will change next year. We will explore the current law and the extent to which it will change; and we will discuss the extent to which it will alter the way in which receivables are financed under English law. 

We will discuss the way in which the English law approach to interpretation of contracts differs from the German law approach. 

It is intended that the seminar will be interactive and we will encourage those attending to participate in the discussion.

We will hold the client training at our offices in Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich:

  • November 20, 2018 in Frankfurt from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm
  • November 21, 2018 in Munich from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm
  • December 13, 2018 in Hamburg from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm

The client training will be held in English.

To give you the opportunity for further discussions and expanding your network, we invite you to a lunch buffet following the training session.  

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Frankfurt, Hamburg or Munich.
