“Working with Contracts is an excellent resource for the junior deal lawyer. I recommend it to all of my Columbia Law School students to help give them an edge in drafting and reading real-world contracts.” – Ilan S. Nissan, Partner, Goodwin Procter LLP; Adjunct Professor of Law, Columbia Law School
According to a review in the New York Law Journal:
“Working with Contracts should become a bible for… associates in large corporate firms because it offers the reader both basic and more-advanced drafting techniques and concepts. The conscientious reader will be drawn into the subject matter and may likely be surprised that such potentially complex, and perhaps dull, topics could be so inspiring.”
