  • Winning Bid: Can you reach the promised land?

    The law generally states that a company or person cannot engage in misleading and deceptive conduct. Once a contract is signed or a deal done, this is not necessarily the end of the tale. Often written agreements, which are drafted by lawyers or are in standard form, contain a clause that the written document constitutes the entirety of the agreement between the parties. However, this clause will not necessarily exclude any liability for representations made in the course of negotiating or selling the deal.
