Contract Management : Specific Contract Clause Study


Every contract contains a set of standard clauses commonly called "boiler-plate" clauses. These are tucked away towards the end of any properly drafted English contract. Have you looked at these last couple of clauses & wondered what they mean?

They are often considered the less important clauses. As such, "boiler-plate" clauses are often overlooked or not negotiated. Some of them are straightforward, however, some, like the Force Majeure clause, cover important matters and can present issues if not negotiated appropriately.
