Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Contracts is a comprehensive guide to practical contractual matters acting as a 'one-stop' shop for everyone who wishes to understand, or has to negotiate or draft, a commercial contract.

It includes a guide to the common legal issues in negotiating and drafting contracts; an explanation of the structure and contents of a commercial contract; good and bad practice in drafting (and in using clear, modern English); the meaning of and use of commonly-used words, phrases and legal jargon; the formalities for creating and signing contracts; commentary on the use of electronic drafting and electronic signatures; and guidance on the interpretation of contracts.

In addition to being fully revised and updated taking account of changes brought about by new or amended law and practice, the 4th edition will also include:-

  • a new introductory section covering the formalities of entering into contracts;
  • a new section on best practice for contracts which are signed and sent by email among the parties (R (on application of Mercury Tax Group and another) v HMRC);
  • revisions to exisiting sections and a new section dealing with the continuing dominance and onward march of Investors Compensation Scheme v West Bromwich Building Society and now Chartbrook Ltd v Persimmon Homes Ltd & another;
  • implications of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and the Consumer Act 2015; and expansion of the chapter covering legal terms and lawyers' jargon.
Drafting and Negotiating Commercial Contracts is essential reading for commercial lawyers, contract managers and anyone involved in negotiating and drafting commercial contracts.
