Commercial Law

Commercial agreements and contracts provide the foundation for businesses to operate and are fundamental to the success of a business. Without carefully constructed agreements, disputes and litigation are more likely. Whether you are looking to improve your legal drafting skills or simply keep abreast of the latest developments in international business law and best-practice, Thorogood offers a wide-range of commercial law courses for the in-house lawyer that are presented both as public and in-house training courses, in order to fulfil all your (and your department’s) training needs.

This briefing takes into account relevant legislation and case law. For all points of the law and critical distinctions, you will find crystal-clear explanations and guidelines, and a host of case studies illustrating the law and its application.

This valuable report has been completely updated since it first appeared in 2002: it includes accounts of all the most recent important cases and highlights significant changes in the way that the courts now assess damages.
