Written by a veteran corporate legal skills trainer, PLI’s Drafting for Corporate Finance: What Law School Doesn’t Teach You offers the legal, financial, business, accounting, and drafting information that lawyers must understand for corporate finance documentation, especially debt documentation.
Drafting for Corporate Finance covers all the components of effective contract drafting, including basic structural issues, including the parties, instruments, markets, and terminology; conditions precedent, representations, warranties, defaults, other provisions, and their interplay; full spectrum of subsidiaries, starting with wholly-owned vs. non-wholly owned; contract structure, drafting, and negotiation; housekeeping, insurance, information, general business, and financial covenants; debt and negative pledges, including restrictions on sale-leasebacks, on debt, and on debt of subsidiaries; enforceability, security interest, true sale, and 10b-5 opinions; amendment, control, and refinancing provisions; and risk-based review of contracts to eliminate compromising contract errors.
You’ll also find a ”best practices” chapter featuring a technical drafting checklist, guidance on drafting disclosure of contract terms and on leveraging technology, and cautionary ”lessons of Enron.”
Drafting for Corporate Finance: What Law School Doesn’t Teach You is a vital handbook for inexperienced transactional attorneys, a useful refresher for veteran attorneys, and an important tool for law firms seeking to get maximum productivity out of their associates.
