WeirFoulds – Beware of Boilerplate: What You Need to Know About Common Contract Clauses
A substantial share of contract litigation involves disputes over the interpretation of contractual clauses. Boilerplate clauses are sometimes the subject of such disputes, or they fail to accomplish what they were meant to in the event of a dispute.
WeirFoulds LLP’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group invites you to a breakfast seminar where we will discuss the purpose, interpretation, enforceability and practical implications of common contract clauses. The discussion will include a review of recent case law, and will highlight practical considerations for dealing with and drafting certain boilerplate clauses in order to avoid or succeed in contract litigation.
Our panelists will discuss the following common contract clauses:
- Choice of law and choice of jurisdiction clauses
- Arbitration clauses
- Entire agreement clauses
- Exclusion of liability clauses
- Moderators: Greg Richards and Marie-Andrée Vermette
8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. Registration, breakfast and networking
8:30 a.m. – 9:50 a.m. Seminar and Q&A
