hear from Richard Nicholas on the recent changes to contract

16 April 2019

With all the political upheaval that’s going on you may have missed some significant Supreme Court decisions over the last 6-12 months that have changed UK contract law.

Richard Nicholas, IT technology and contract lawyer, takes a look at some of the issues that may arise with oral contracts - for example, where a contract is made in a social situation, what will make it contractually binding? Watch our highlight video to reveal what really matters when a contract is formed.  

Richard delves into the effects of limitation liability clauses and a radical change to the law on implied terms and explains how you might want to change how you should draft contracts as a result.


You can also follow our LinkedIn showcase page where you’ll find lots of useful resources and information aimed at in house lawyers.
