Issues that regularly arise in trade and commerce are terms of trade, data protection and privacy issues, performance of contracts and agreements, regulatory compliance and enforceability of contracts, management of liability under contracts, formulating claims and resolving disputes.
Sajen is often approached to advise on the exercise of rights under contracts, including the effect of particular clauses and whether rights under a contract may or may not be exercised. This often determines the scope of a potential legal dispute, its gravity and the various options that may be taken in respect of that dispute.
