If money is the lifeblood of business, contracts are the arteries that help carry it around the commercial body. Anyone in business is liable to have to deal with business contracts, but few are trained to do so. Even those that are trained may have experience in limited areas or in the distant past. But the right contract can make a vital difference, not just to recording and enforcing, if need be, the contract terms, but also in ensuring the agreement deals with the real issues and approaches them in a practical way. Finding help in this area is not easy, as the market tends to offer little between serious academic tomes on the one hand and student summaries geared to exams on the other. Business Contracts Handbook fills that gap, covering both the basics of contract law in an accessible style and using a thoroughly practical approach to understanding and negotiating the key terms in a business contract. If you have little prior knowledge, Charles Boundy's many years of experience in drafting and providing guidance on business agreements of all kinds will enable you to acquire a working background quickly. If you have years of experience you will still benefit from a checklist, a reminder of what is important and why, and an easy reference to up-to-date language and drafting - there is always more to learn.

Many books have been written on negotiation tactics and a few books have been written on contract drafting, but no book has combined the two disciplines into one-until now. Resulting from over 10 years of actual negotiation experience as both buyer and seller, author Stephen Guth offers insight into a world of negotiations and contracts that few ever see. This book isn't a feel-good book on win-win negotiations. It's an insider's view into real life negotiation tactics and ploys. Readers will learn how to use negotiation tactics such as the Columbo, the Price Slice and Dice, and the Signature Limit Lasso. Readers will also learn how to spot and counter vendor ploys such as the Pop-Tart, Mirroring, and the Only Game in Town. To put it all together, readers are instructed on contract drafting tricks such as Expressly Implied Warranties, the Endless Indemnification, and the Unlimited Limitation of Liability. Readers will never look at contracts the same way again.

This resource educates lawyers and business professionals on how to draft "boilerplate" provisions, a legal term that refers to the standardized, one-size-fits-all provisions that generally appear at the end of a contract. Each chapter tackles one of 20 provisions and analyzes why it is important, the key legal and business issues raised, and how to draft the provision to suit a particular transaction. This analysis not only helps readers better understand how to draft these provisions in their contracts, but also helps them better understand the other party's proposed provision.
