Wildy's Book of the Month: July 2018

Drafting and tailoring commercial agreements to your client's needs can take up valuable time in your already busy day. With its range of flexible and adaptable precedents, Drafting Commercial Agreements can help you to draw up agreements accurately and efficiently.

Thorough and practical, the book is divided into three 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. There 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.
This new 2nd edition contains:

  • a new set of terms and conditions for e-commerce
  • a cross-border arbitration clause to try to mitigate the effects of Brexit
  • a free-standing non-disclosure agreement that can be put in place before contract negotiations begin in earnest
  • updates to take account of case law developments since the first edition was published (including Rainy Sky v. Kookmin Bank).
The documents included 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 you time and money.

This new edition provides you with an easy-to-use set of templates for drafting and interpreting a broad range of commercial agreements.
