Boilerplate clauses are a vital part of the majority of commercial contracts.

This updated fourth edition of A-Z Guide to Boilerplate and Commercial Clauses provides up-to-date, practical drafting guidance on the purpose and effect of a wide range of boilerplate clauses in common use.

It also covers a selection of other contract clauses the contract drafter and user frequently encounter in many types of commercial agreement.

The book includes:-

  • A step-by-step commentary
  • Examples of best practice in different situations
  • Detailed notes on each type of boilerplate clause
  • A summary of relevant law, including statutory definitions and case law
  • Precedents available as electronic downloads
For ease of reference, the clauses are arranged in alphabetical order and laid out in a modern, clear and accessible format. The book includes a set of typical boilerplate terms as they might be found in a lengthy commercial contract.

Since the last edition, major developments in both case law and legislation have resulted in the revision and expansion of sections which deal with:-

  • New legislation such as the Consumer Rights Act 2015, the General Data Protection Regulations 2016 {SI 2016/679) and the Trade Secrets Directive {216/943)
  • The decisions in cases which have affected for example:
      The meaning of:-

    • 'Breach'
    • 'Substantial' and 'material' in clauses for termination
    • 'Beyond reasonable control' in force majeure cases
  • When a priority of terms clause will operate
  • Whether rules applying to penalties also apply to deposits, and
  • The legal effectiveness of 'no amendment' or 'no variation' clauses
This edition of A-Z Guide to Boilerplate and Commercial Clauses expands the legal commentary and practical guidance to help you better understand the legal framework underpinning a boilerplate and commercial clause and how the courts will view them in the event of a dispute.

Comprehensive and organised for ease of use, the book will guide you through each clause, explaining its purpose, considering its relevance to an agreement, discussing drafting issues and providing illustrative examples.
