Présentation de l'éditeur

With A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Kenneth A. Adams has created a uniquely in-depth survey of the building blocks of contract language. First published in 2004, it offers those who draft, review, negotiate, or interpret contracts an alternative to the dysfunction of traditional contract language and the flawed conventional wisdom that perpetuates it. This manual has become a vital resource throughout the legal profession, in the U.S. and internationally.

This is the third edition of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting. One-third longer than the second edition (published in 2008) and in a larger format, it contains much new material and has otherwise been revised and supplemented, making it even more essential.

This manual's focus remains how to express contract terms in prose that is free of the archaisms, redundancies, ambiguities, and other problems that afflict traditional contract language. With exceptional analysis and an unmatched level of practical detail, Adams highlights common sources of confusion and recommends clearer and more concise alternatives. This manual is organized to facilitate easy reference, and it illustrates its analysis with numerous examples. Consult it to save time in drafting and negotiation and to reduce the risk of dispute.

This manual should be of use to readers in every contract ecosystem:

a solo or small-firm general practitioner handling a broad range of contracts, from leases to separation agreements;

a contract-management professional responsible for negotiating contracts with customers;

a big-law associate drafting mergers-and acquisitions contracts;

an in-house lawyer overhauling the company's template sales contracts;

a paralegal reviewing confidentiality agreements a company is asked to sign;

a judge trying to make sense of a confusing contract provision.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Necessary resource for any contract drafter 24 janvier 2014
Par Chris Lemens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Couverture à spirales
Ken Adams' manual should be sitting open on the desk of everyone who writes contracts on a regular basis. It's been open on my desk every day since I bought it. I no longer bother closing it.

Highlights include:
1. The best existing set of recommendations on what language to use to impose obligations, impose prohibitions, create discretion, make representations, and express conditions.
2. An incredibly comprehensive lexicon of problematic uses with solutions to them. Things from alternatives to "represents and warrants" to how "such" can be ambiguous.
3. Guidance on when terms can be usefully vague without being ambiguous, including extended discussions of "reasonable efforts" and "material adverse change."

Throughout, Ken provides guidance in the form of instructions and examples. The reader does not have to think about how to implement a suggestion after agreeing with Ken's analysis. It is right there, with examples of best practices, practices that would be OK in the right circumstances, and practices to avoid.

For a new practitioner (whether a lawyer, a business person, or a purchasing agent), Ken's manual will set you on a path to avoid drafting mistakes that will haunt you for years to come. For an experienced practitioner, it will be an invaluable reference to make your work faster and more consistent. As a general counsel, I bought a copy for every lawyer working for me. When outside lawyers draft agreements for me, I direct them to Ken's manual.

Others have commented on the binding. I love it. It allows the book to set open on my desk without me having to weight it down with another book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great tool for students 12 mai 2014
Par M. Mugler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Couverture à spirales|Achat vérifié
This is an incredibly helpful book, especially for students like myself and those getting their first opportunities to draft real contracts. My copy arrived with a defect on about 20 pages due to some sort of binding error - holes were punched across the text as well as on the side of the pages for the spiral binding - but I noticed too late to be able to return the book through Amazon. However, as soon as I posted about it the Author personally reached out and offered to help fix the matter and get another copy sent to me. Looking forward to receiving a more intact copy soon. Very pleased!

I too was surprised that it was spiral bound - Amazon should really have a way of publicizing that for pre-orders. But I don't think the binding detracts much, especially since the cover wraps around it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 great book, annoying format (spiral bound) 19 janvier 2014
Par J. Caddell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Couverture à spirales|Achat vérifié
I enjoy Adams' take on the ultra-conservative world of contract drafting. The binding is weird though. It's spiral bound but also has this weird flap that makes it an awkward shape. I see that the product listing now mentions the spirals. That was not the case when I pre-ordered it, so it was an unpleasant surprise when it arrived. That said, as a transactional lawyer, I recommend this and wish his ideas were more prevalent.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book but Kindle is $$$$ 25 février 2015
Par Nicholas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I purchased this book a few months ago and I liked it. Liked it so much that I thought I should also get the kindle version b/c the spiral bound nature of the hardcopy is cumbersome to transport and it can be difficult to read if anywhere else other than a desk. Then, oh yikes. I went ahead and did it. But dang, I thought ebooks were suppose to be cheaper. Not this one. All in all, it's a great book. But just a tad unhappy that I paid so much for the ebook to merely supplement my hardcopy.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent. A must for lawyers who draft contracts. 23 juin 2014
Par RAY - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Couverture à spirales
The author covers the subject of contract drafting with clear and workable suggestions for uniformity in style and wording. His suggestions are sensible. If all who draft contracts followed them, contracts would be clearer, for both lawyers and clients.

With respect for their opinions, I disagree with those who criticize the book's spiral binding. I have used the book's second edition and its spiral binding has made it much easier to use. I wouldn't want it any other way.
