Legal Usage in Drafting Corporate Agreements
Kenneth A. AdamsISBN: 1567204104;
From a corporate lawyer in private practice comes the first detailed survey of the conventions of language and structure in drafting corporate agreements. Adams summarizes the traditional techniques of drafting and proposes alternatives that will produceclearer, more efficient contracts. This comprehensive and pragmatic book includes examples of different usages, and explains the reasons for favoring one over another. Citing other authorities on drafting, legal writing, and English usage and grammar generally, as well as case law, Adams creates an authoritative context for his own arguments and advice. An appendix provides a "before" and "after" versions of a sample contract identifying inefficient or archaic usages and proposing alternatives.
