This new work provides practitioners and academics with a detailed guide to the doctrine of estoppel. It deals with estoppel by conduct and election, examining both general principles and the particular relationships in which estoppel can arise, such as principal and agent, landlord and tenant, bailor and bailee, licensees of IP and bank and customer, as well as estoppel in different transactions, including insurance, insolvency and company business.

A particular feature is its in-depth analysis of case law to show how underlying principles work in practice in the courts. It covers English and Northern Ireland case law and, where appropriate, case law in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland and Hong Kong.

The features include:-

  • authoritative and comprehensive explanation of estoppel;
  • deals with the many different types of estoppel, including promissory estoppel,
  • estoppel by convention and representation,
  • proprietary estoppel and election;
  • explains general principles, as well as the application of the doctrine in specific areas of law;
  • looks at estoppel of common law and in equity;
  • illustrates how estoppel works by in-depth analysis of case law;
  • deals with procedural matters and shows how estoppel can be used as a defence.
