The Third Edition of The Law of Waiver, Variation and Estoppel, written by Sean Wilken QC and Karim Ghaly, has just been published by Oxford University Press. This new edition is a significant revision, rewrite and expansion of the Second. It considers in detail the developments and case law that have occurred in the 10 years since the Second Edition. In so doing it provides a thorough and up to date analysis of the scope and affect of these doctrines both in terms of the underlying legal concepts at play and the practical and commercial effects they have.
The Third Edition also considers: the increasing trend in commercial parties to insert “no waiver” clauses into contracts, the new doctrine of “contractual estoppel” and the apparent death and resurrection of proprietary estoppel in Yeoman’s Row v Cobbe and Thorner v Major.
Readership: Solicitors, barristers and in-house lawyers practising in all areas of the law; Judges; Postgraduate students; Reference libraries in the UK and worldwide.
