Contracts are the building blocks of business. The legal relationships between a business and its suppliers, customers, employees and service providers are all based on the law of contract. Yet it is often treated at best as a necessary evil and at worst as an obstacle.

All managers handle contracts, but how many have even a rudimentary awareness of contract law? Here at last is a book written specifically for them, by a practising commercial lawyer. Charles Boundy introduces the principles you need to know, and shows how they apply to key elements of business such as sales of goods and services, product safety, confidentiality, competition, agency and distribution, employment and licensing. He also deals with planning contracts, using standard forms, the implications of new technology, the international dimension and what to do whrn things go wrong. A useful glossary of legal terms is included.
