Third Party Rights is a high-level, practitioner text on privity of contract and third party rights in contracts. Traditionally, third parties have been unable to benefit or be bound by contracts, but there have always been exceptions in common law, while the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 has carved out a general and wide-ranging exception to the doctrine.

This work guides practitioners through all aspects of both the old and new law.

  • In-depth guide to a key doctrine of contract law that is now in a state of transition
  • Practical focus providing practitioners with answers to the contractual issues they come across in their everyday practice
  • Draws extensively on the experience of other common law jurisdictions that have gone further in developing exceptions to the doctrine
  • Assess the likely impact of the new English legislation by reference to the US experience
