Charles Russell Speechlys launches The Book of Commercial Awareness

The Charles Russell Speechlys Commercial team is pleased to launch The Book of Commercial Awareness, a reference manual for in-house counsel containing concise and practical guidance on recent legal developments affecting commercial contracts.

As a firm, we are committed to sharing with our in-house clients and contacts, and there are few better things to share than knowledge. We recognise that in-house counsel are under increased pressure to provide legal solutions in the context of the wider business framework.

It is therefore important to understand not just the technical aspects of each case, but also the practical implication that in house counsel can provide to the business.

To that end, we have pulled together, in one place, some of the most interesting recent judicial decisions from the last year or so. But being 'interesting' is not enough. Our focus is on developments which have an impact on the drafting, negotiation and interpretation of commercial contracts.

The structure of each case discussion identifies the background issue, what is new from the case and, perhaps most importantly, the practical impact and 'take away' for use in commercial contracts.

Please download a sample of the manual’s contents, by reviewing the contents page of each Collection within the manual and a sample case discussion.

If you would like to receive a copy of the full manual, please contact David Berry, Editor, or your usual Charles Russell Speechlys contact.
