This resource serves to educate lawyers and business professionals on how to draft the many types of "boilerplate" provisions, a legal term that refers to the standardized, one-size-fits-all provisions 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. Such 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 process.
