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.
