Unfair Contract Terms In B2B Contracts Webinar

16 August 2023 marked one year since the extension of the unfair contract terms regime in the Fair Trading Act 1986 to standard form business-to-business contracts, came into force.

In a recent webinar, Amy Ryburn (partner) and Anna Parker (special counsel) provided guidance for those grappling with questions like: 

  • How do you identify whether the regime applies to the contracts you're using?
  • How should you approach the contract review task?  Who needs to be involved?  What are some of the practical challenges?
  • What are the risks of getting it wrong?
  • What guidance is available (both in New Zealand and overseas) that may assist in reviewing terms?
  • What future reform may be on the cards and how do you plan for this?

Below is the recording of the webinar and you can download a copy of the PowerPoint presentation here

If you have any questions or feedback, or you need further guidance on the regime, please reach out to Amy or Anna.
