noun (plural proferentes /ˌprɒfəˈrɛntiːz/)Law
The party which proposes or adduces a contract or a condition in a contract.
- Lord Fraser at page 173 also said that he did not see how a clause can ‘expressly’ exempt or indemnify the proferens against his own negligence unless it contains the word negligence or some synonym for it.
- The reason for imposing such standards on these clauses is the inherent improbability that the other party to a contract including such a clause intended to release the proferens from a liability that would otherwise fall upon him.
- It is common ground that the proferens here is the respondent.
Latin, literally 'uttering'.
