When it all goes horribly wrong how confident can you be that your contractual exclusion and limitation of liability clauses will hold good? Alex Charlton QC and Martyn Naylor will revisit the basics, review the relevant cases and reveal all there is to know about the pitfalls and problems that may arise.
The aim of the master class is to refresh and invigorate the minds of those lawyers who draft such clauses, to guide and explain to those who litigate and to educate those clients who are may find themselves in the firing line. The discussion will focus in particular on exclusion and limitation of liability clauses in the context of IT and outsourcing contracts and the types of loss and damage claimed by the customer.
