Chapter 9: Before you enter into your first contract

Rosie Burbidge


Contract laws and basic principles vary substantially in Europe particularly between countries which come from a common law compared to a civil law tradition. This chapter looks at the most important differences such as pre-contractual liability, misrepresentation, unfair contract terms, good faith and the abrupt termination of commercial relations. It guides the reader through the basic features of a contract and identifies the issues that can commonly go wrong when drafting European contracts so that the reader can avoid a similar fate.
