Retention of Title

It’s unusual these days for suppliers of physical good stock not to have retention of title provisions in their contract. Stemming from the UK- wide Sale of Goods Act 1979, and subject to contract law, it is usually a formal insolvency procedure that triggers suppliers’ reliance on the retention of title contract provisions.


This webinar looks at the legal framework for retention of title, and how case law over the years has developed and driven how claimants and IPs exercise and challenge their various rights. We will consider how ROT operates in law and in practice, and set out some strategies for dealing with ROT in a trading scenario, when a pre-pack sale is proposed.
