Boilerplate

By September 6, 2021No Comments

In contract law, the term “boilerplate language” or “boilerplate clause” describes the parts of a contract that are considered standard. In negotiations, the phrase “that’s boilerplate” can be used to mean that a clause is simply required and therefore not negotiable, does not need to be negotiated or is not worthy of negotiation. Such statements should not be accepted on trust. The relevant clause should always be examined carefully.
