    Meaning of the term 'after consultation'

    Hi everyone,

    I would appreciate it very much if anyone could tell me what the definition and/or criteria are for the term "after consultation", if used in a commercial contract (i.e. in the context of private law / contract law). Are there any case law that discuss the meaning of this term?

    For example, if a clause in a commercial contract states something like: "Party X may only do action Y after consultation with party Z".

    I have Googled for definitions of this term, but I could only find definitions and case law in the context of administrative law and labour law - none in the context of commercial contracts.


    Thanks!

    It may depend on various factors: other case law, the context of the overall contract, etc... Without looking at the clause in context of the rest of the contract, it is difficult to determine the exact meaning that was intended by the drafter. However, if you have any reservation about a term in the contract, you should have it defined and clarified in the contract by the drafter of the contract.
