Two articles in this briefing:

A pedantic article about commas

Confusion over commas (and the lack of them) is now probably the biggest cause of dispute over the interpretation of contracts. A recent case is a good example.

In this series of legal briefings I update you about recent developments in corporate or commercial law. Some of these briefings will hopefully resonate with some of you some of the time. I explain some of the context and background law, and perhaps give some specific tips. And maybe ramble or even rant a bit.

If you have any questions about anything raised in any of my legal briefings please do not hesitate to get in touch.

And please remember my two SPECIAL OFFERS:

Special offer #1:

If you get any scoped quote from any traditional full-service law firm’s company commercial department for any work within my areas of expertise, I will 1/ match it; 2/ knock at least 15% off it; and 3/ provide the service with a more experienced level of expertise and service. This is not a one-off offer; it is a permanent offer. It’s just the way it is.

Special offer #2:

Free introductory meeting.

This isn't really a special offer either. I’ve always offered it. If you are a new potential client, I am always happy to meet you so we can introduce each other, learn more about each other and decide if we want to work with each other.
All the best,
Andrew James
