    • 15.1.2.  if the law would make the term void because it authorised MJF to recover costs or losses or damages to be calculated in a way we chose, the term shall be read down and construed as authorising MJF to recover the maximum reasonable costs, losses and damages to be calculated in a reasonable way that did not cause the term to be void.
  • 15.2.  If, despite the application of this clause, the law would make the term void, the term is to be read down and construed as if it were varied, to the minimum extent necessary, so that the term is not void.
