Professor Edwin Peel on termination and repudiation of contracts

You want to terminate a contract. Perhaps it is no longer profitable for you or circumstances have changed so it’s difficult for you to comply.

Perhaps it’s a counterparty who wants to terminate - and you dispute their grounds.

If the rights are set out clearly in your contract, then there isn’t a problem. But what if they are not?

This session will consider key issues in termination.
