All managers handle contracts, but how many have even a rudimentary awareness of contract law? This text introduces the principles managers need to know, and shows how they apply to key elements of business such as sale of goods and services, product safety, confidentiality, competition, agency and distribution, employment and licensing.

The author also deals with planning contracts, using standard forms, the implications of new technology, the international dimension and what to do when things go wrong.
