This text is written by three commercial lawyers, whose clients as often ask them for help in getting out of a contract as in getting them into one in the first place. Built around two business case studies, the book highlights the various legal issues that a business must address when faced with a contract it wants to walk away from.

The authors seek to demystify the complicated aspects of English law for the non-lawyer. They demonstrate how managers: can address how they make contracts; avoid making wrong decisions because they fail to appreciate what contracts they actually have or how to get around them; and become more attuned to the legal ins and outs of contracts, enabling them to use lawyers more cost-effectively.
