The Treasury Department has recently proposed reforms to unfair contract terms legislation. This seminar will cover the proposed reforms along with contract drafting tips to ensure your contracts are enforceable; and tips and remedies available when reviewing contracts.

Our presenter will discuss:

  • The proposed reforms;
  • Unfair terms rationale and identification including examples of unfair contract terms;
  • Practical application via recent case law - how to avoid unfair contract terms particularly Penalty, Termination and Cancellation Clauses, when drafting contracts;
  • Reviewing existing contracts already executed – What remedies if any, are available to your client in the case of the contract containing unfair terms?
