A Smorgasbord on Contractual Interpretation

The talk covers a range of recent decisions relevant to contractual interpretation. Previously the talk has encompassed two main themes: first, the efficacy of standard boiler plate terms, considering Globe Motors v Lucas Varity Steering [2016] EWCA Civ 396 and LSREF III v Wright Ltd [2016] EWHC 466; and second, the circumstances in which the court will imply a contract between parties from conduct, in light of Vos LJ’s judgment in Heis v MF Global UK Services [2016] EWCA Civ 569. We also addressed the Supreme Court case of BNY Mellon v LBG [2016] UKSC 29.
