Bell Gully InHouse seminar programme

​Auckland InHouse seminars


THURSDAY 30 MARCH 2017 | AUCKLAND | Level 21, Vero Centre, 48 Shortland Street


Update on Contract Law
5.30pm - 6.30pm 
Presenters: David Friar and Tim Fitzgerald​

In this session, we will bring you up to date with the latest case law and provide practical tips concerning the interpretation of contracts, including:

  • The extent to which you can look to material outside the contract to interpret the words in the contract,
  • The outside material that the courts have found helpful (and the material found to be unhelpful),
  • Whether the parties' actual intentions, the commercial purpose of the contract, or "business common sense" can override the contract's plain meaning, and
  • Whether exclusion clauses should be interpreted differently to other clauses in a contract.

We will also provide an update on the new Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017, which was passed by Parliament last month.​ ​​​
