Two Day Programme: Liabilities, Damages and other Contentious Issues in International Commercial Agreements (London, United Kingdom - March 5-6, 2020) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Liabilities, Damages and other Contentious Issues in International Commercial Agreements" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Understanding the detailed law of damages and liabilities for the purposes of negotiating and drafting international contracts governed by English Law

Reduce your exposure to risk and liability in your contracts in two essential days

Now is not the time for weaknesses in your commercial contracts when risk and liability have to be kept to a minimum. During the negotiation of international commercial agreements, the exact exposure in relation to damages is often not properly identified, anticipated or understood. Frequently, the parties are:

  • Unaware of the true nature of the law of damages in the chosen governing law of the contract
  • Unaware of the fundamental differences of approach in the Common Law and Civil Law systems
  • Unaware that their attempts at limiting or excluding their liability may be ineffective

This specialist two-day seminar has been specifically developed to focus exclusively on this subject. The seminar offers a wide-ranging and detailed understanding of the law of damages under English law with comparisons to Civil Law jurisdictions. Presented by an international specialist in the field, the seminar shall enable participants to effectively draft and negotiate contracts with knowledge and confidence.
