Overview (Program Summary)
Contracts related to software and IT services are largely inspired by Anglo-Saxon legal categories. Common clauses such as limitations and exclusions of liability, "indemnities", liquidated damages/penalties, "best efforts" obligations and many others are often modelled or drafted on common law principles and rules.
On 15 February Bird & Bird organised a seminar on the legal meaning and scope of such clauses under English law. In this new seminar, organised jointly by ACC and Bird & Bird, we will address the treatment of these same clauses under Spanish law and how and to what extent the Anglo-Saxon categories are adapted to Spanish principles and rules, taking into account case law and our own experience acting in Spanish Courts and Arbitral Tribunals.
