Risk Essentials Webinar: Liquidated Damages, covenants to pay and penalty clauses: how far can you go?

In recent years, the courts have developed a new approach to distinguishing between liquidated damages provisions and penalty clauses. Rather than whether or not the amount payable is a genuine pre-estimate of a party’s loss, the focus is now on whether the payment provision is a primary or secondary obligation. This is intended to be a more flexible and commercial test – but how successful has it been in delivering on those aims? Our panel will explore the case law and offer tips for achieving contractual certainty.
