This handbook provides a clear and practical approach to commercial law. Written by an authoritative team of contributors from Charles Russell LLP, it looks at the structure of the most commonly encountered transactions, provides a checklist of the terms that need to be included in each agreement and an analysis of the issues that need to be considered in drafting them. The coverage includes:

  • an overview of the considerations that will underpin any commercial agreement including basic contract law, choice of jurisdiction and the allocation of risk between the parties.
  • detailed consideration of all of the key types of agreement ranging from agency, distribution and franchising agreements through to joint ventures and agreements for services and the sale and supply of goods.
  • discrete chapters on competition law and the resolution of commercial disputes.
  • a checklist of boilerplate provisions and a glossary of commercial terms.

The contributors have taken a strategic approach to the subject, placing emphasis on the structure of the deals as they are recorded in contracts by commercial lawyers. The book addresses the structures that lawyers habitually impose when they are asked to record a transaction, the issues that those lawyers should be considering in conjunction with their clients, and the jargon that informs the way in which business people negotiate the transactions between themselves and describe them to their lawyers.
