Contract Drafting in Light of Recent Legislative Changes

May 19, 2022 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (CET)
Ends: 2:00 PM (CET)

The legislative framework for contract drafting is rapidly evolving. A revised Book of the Belgian Civil Code on obligations (which is likely to be adopted after the Easter holidays), a recent change in the law to combat late payment between companies, and the existing rules on B2B contracts in the Code of Economic law all need to be taken into account. 

Key concepts, principles and rules that are ingrained in the minds of every legal practitioner are or will be modified by these legislative changes (for example, concerning the possibility to invoke hardship, or the possibility of anticipatory breach). Moreover, the relationship between the various legal provisions is not always immediately clear. 

In this webinar, we will take a look at the new and existing laws, and discuss their practical impact. We will provide useful examples and tips and tricks on how to draft and interpret commercial contracts within the current and upcoming legislative rules.
