“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.”
—New York Law Journal
”[Working with Contracts is] highly recommended and. . . is a pretty good bargain.’"
—Dennis Kennedy, Information Technology Transactional Lawyer and member of the ABA Law Practice Management Section’s Council
”[Working with Contracts is an] excellent book.”
—Susan J. Irion, Director of Professional Development, DLA Piper, Chicago
