The Interpretation of Contracts offers expert guidance in preparing, advising on and disputing agreements. This new edition gives you practical help when you are faced with questions of disputed interpretation. It enables you to construct solid arguments based on the principles laid down by case law.
Starting with key principles including the maxims of interpretation such as the ejudsdem generis rule, it goes through the different components of a basic proposition followed by in-depth analysis and illustrated by the most relevant judicial decisions.
This title also helps you identify the materials available to interpret a contract such as previous agreements, published precedents, pre-contract negotiations and post contractual conduct. It covers the issue of addressing the role of a previous case law in interpreting a contract and the ‘golden rules’ for establishing the meaning of a word, including scientific and technical terms. You will have the best resource to avoid future disputes over meaning.
