Where it is unclear which party is at fault, termination potentially creates legal issues for all parties involved — from the terminating party to the downstream parties — and results in unnecessary time and cost due to contract and payment disputes from possible adjudication, arbitration or court claims and counterclaims.

Daniel Tay will present the key legal aspects in termination by reference to applicable contract provisions and the applicable law as a practical guide to managing contract termination and payment recovery options for the parties involved.
