Format: Paperback & CD-ROM
Drafting and tailoring commercial agreements can take up valuable time in a practitioner’s already busy day. With its range of flexible and adaptable precedents, Drafting Commercial Agreements helps to draw up agreements quickly and easily.
Thorough and practical, the book is divided into three clear parts:
- Part 1 examines the basic rules, structure and construction of a commercial contract.
- Part 2 provides a guide to common commercial clauses, including those relating to exclusion and limitation. Included is a discrete chapter on how to draft a liquidated damages clause.
- Part 3 sets out and provides commentary on a range of commercial agreements. These are intended to cover those areas most commonly encountered in commercial practice and include agency, distribution, franchising, joint ventures and the sale and supply of goods.
Model clauses and agreements are reproduced on a CD-ROM accompanying the book, allowing easy customisation and saving time and money.
The author draws on over 25 years’ of practice experience to provide invaluable hints on how to avoid common and less obvious mistakes.
