Can my contract be varied by what happens on site or how claims are treated? Is my entire agreement clause effective ? A discussion of recent cases for and against

Wednesday 7 Aug 2019
5:30 pm for 6:00 pm start
Ashurst, Level 38, Riverside Centre, 123 Eagle Street

In light of the UK Supreme Court decision in MWB v Rock Advertising [2018] UKSC 24 and other recent UK and Australian cases, Level Twenty Seven Chambers barristers Michael Trim and Claire Schneider will review effective agreement clauses in contracts.

The session will cover two topics:

  • “How effective is my entire agreement clause?”

What now when the UK Supreme Court upheld one of these clauses in contrast to some previous court of appeal authorities?

  • “Can I be estopped from relying on my agreement?”

How and when can conventional practices engaged in by parties during the course of a project operate to defeat a party’s right to rely on and enforce the contractual terms?  What relevance do entire agreement and other exclusion clauses have on such claims?

More information and rsvp details are available on this flyer.
