We hope you find this guide helpful. The aim is to explore a number of important contractual issues under English law and compare the position in France, Germany and the Netherlands.
There is an important distinction under English law between a warranty and a representation – but what is the position in other European territories? Does the same distinction apply under German law, with the same consequences for remedies? Is a duty of good faith implied into commercial contracts in France and the Netherlands – and, if so, does this duty apply during the negotiation period? In this interactive document, we explore these issues and more.
