Regulators are looking carefully at introducing further legislation and other measures to tighten up the laws around Unfair Contracts. In order to properly prepare you need to ensure that you are on top of all the developments. This comes on top of a year of significant developments so it’s essential to stay up to date, so you can be confident your advice will not pose a risk.

This session will provide an update on the significant developments and 2019 cases including a forecast of possible changes in the leadup to 2020 and beyond. With reference to significant cases this session will also cover topics including:

  • When a fee constitutes a penalty;
  • Drafting tips for ensuring that clauses are not deemed to be penalties; and

Strategies for dealing with purported penalty clauses.

This seminar can be booked individually or as part of our CPD Mix & Match 5 Point Marathon, Tuesday 31 March.
