The essentials of Swiss contract law - Episode 3: Limitation of Liability
In our blog and podcast series "The essentials of Swiss contract law", Christian Oetiker, Selim Keller and Pascal Burgunder of our Litigation and Arbitration team give a short and compact overview on the essential elements of Swiss contract law.
In the third part, Selim Keller, in conversation with Mairi Weder-Gilles, discusses the concept of limitation of liability in Swiss contract law, which refers to the ability of parties to a contract to limit the amount of damages that can be claimed in the event of a breach of contract. He explains the legal framework and conditions for validly limiting liability, as well as the potential risks and benefits of doing so.
