Webinar: Agency, Attribution and Aggregation

May 18, 2023, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

This talk will cover three areas of recent and continuing development applicable across a range of fields of litigation.

What are the boundaries of agency, how is authority established and the consequences when authority is absent?
How can these limits be deployed in claim/defence strategies?
When will the acts or knowledge of directors and agents be attributed to their principal/company and what are the consequences?
Can the acts or knowledge of multiple factors be aggregated together?
