One of the greatest grounds for this book is that the examined doctrine is one of the most difficult areas of contemporary law, and it needs clarification for barristers who specialise in it, as well as solicitors and other practitioners who need advice from time to time.

Estoppel prevents a person from disputing that a statement is true. Estoppel may take several forms, including record, deed, representation, and promissory estoppel.

Estoppel by behaviour and election investigates Estoppel in its business context, examining both fundamental concepts and specific circumstances in which estoppels might develop. It substantially benefits from an in-depth discussion of the underlying case law, which actively demonstrates how concepts are dealt with in court.
