Legal Usage In Drafting Corporate Agreements

Kenneth A. ADAMS practices corporate law at the New York law firm Kramer Levin Naftalis – Frankel LLP. Prior to joining his current law firm, he practiced in Jones`s New York office, Day, Reavis, Pogue and the Geneva office of Winston-Strawn. This important resource examines the parts of a contract and the editorial problems that are found in each. Adams is particularly attentive to the categories of language in the body of the contract and how best to use it. It then discusses more general topics, including the use of defined terms and references to time, and discusses different uses that are generally problematic, such as.B. reservations. Adams also reviews the provisions that define draft conventions, examines the principles of effective general writing applicable to development, and takes into account aspects of the design process. Ideal for anyone who prepares, negotiates or interprets enterprise contracts, this work finds a place in libraries and on the offices of practising lawyers and law students. Better drafting of contracts leads to fewer litigations.

Fewer arguments mean happier customers. In his fourth edition of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Kenneth A. A private lawyer provides detailed analysis and guidance on language and structure agreements in the development of enterprise agreements. Adams summarizes traditional formulation techniques and proposes alternatives that produce clearer and more efficient contracts. This comprehensive and pragmatic book gives examples of different uses and explains in detail the reasons for the preference of one over the other. Referring to other authorities with regard to formulation, legal writing and English use and grammar in general, as well as case law, Adams creates a relevant context for his own arguments and advice. An appendix contains, before and after versions of a standard contract, the identification of inefficient or archaic uses and the proposal of alternatives. .
