Overcome error and oversight while drafting and reviewing commercial contracts.

The agreement must do more than just document the rights and obligations of the parties. It must embody the considerations that induced the purchaser to purchase and the seller to sell the property or the assets that are the subject of the agreement.
Barry D. Lipson, Author

Broad language thats open to interpretation for example, "sole discretion" is a common error in drafting commercial contracts. That infamous phrase carries an unfavourable history in common law decisions, and is entirely avoidable with guidance from The Art of Drafting the Commercial Contract. The precise wording you should be using to limit or expand the scope of a provision is among the many practical topics discussed in this new work by the experienced practitioner and negotiator Barry D. Lipson.

Draft clearer documents in less time, whether youre drafting a corporate, real estate, or other commercial contracts, youll begin with time-saving precedents. Each aspect of the provision is accompanied by expert analysis and commentary, along with ways to customize the clauses for your own purposes, and advice on overcoming common errors. With The Art of Drafting the Commercial Contract as your reference, spare your clients a potential dispute, if not the loss of the entire transaction.

No one cares about the Notice provision until one Party faxes an indemnity claim at 8:00 p.m. on the Friday of a long weekend to someone at the other Party who left at noon that day for two weeks vacation.
