William Day will be speaking at UCL Faculty of Laws Bentham House Conference 2021 on “Intermediaries in Commercial Law”, which will be taking place on the 10th and 11th June at 9am.
This conference will consider current issues concerning intermediaries from a number of different angles, adopting a range of methodological approaches. The conference will also look at the rights and liabilities of intermediaries, and how intermediaries can affect the legal position of others. In a session chaired by Professor Paul Davies from UCL, William will be discussing the unhappy centenary of Said v Butt. In particular, William will be considering what that well-known case reveals about the conceptual nature of undisclosed agency, the justification for interventions by undisclosed principals on contracts, and the limitations imposed on principals from doing so when acting contrary to the terms of the underlying contract or in bad faith.
