How to Comply with Endeavour Obligations

It can be common in construction and real estate contracts to come across ‘endeavours clauses’, included where one of the contracting parties is unwilling to agree to something absolutely. 

Their use can break a deadlock in the drafting of the contract, but they should be used carefully and with a full understanding of the implications for both parties.

This seminar will look at why they are used, what the different expressions actually mean and discuss with the use of past cases how they should be interpreted and enforced.

  • Reasonable endeavours
  • Best endeavours
  • All reasonable endeavours?
  • Why are they used
  • What have the courts told us about their enforceability?
