This is a key reference tool for business managers, lawyers and students of international commercial agreements. What considerations do you need to take into account when planning an international commercial agreement? What writing techniques will ensure that your contract is suited to your needs? What provisions should you include in such a contract? When planning, negotiating and writing international commercial agreements, it is important to know exactly what essential issues need to be addressed. This book does this in an easy-to-use, clear and concise fashion. Contracts fulfill several functions. They spell out the rights and obligations of the contracting parties, manage any potential risks arising out of the contractual relationship and supply a contingency plan for each party in the event that the contractual relationship breaks down. Obviously no contract is perfect but the parties should aim for perfection. This book aims to show you how to achieve this.

Features: an accessible style and content; all essential materials needed by the reader are brought together in one book; includes case studies, easy to use checklists and features that flag key information; each chapter starts with an overview and ends with a summary of key points; and the chapters on the agreements contain template clauses. It is the book is not jurisdiction specific.
