New York Contract Law: A Guide For Non-New York Attorneys (eBook)

New York Contract Law: A Guide For Non-New York Attorneys (eBook)

Author(s):
  • Glen Banks, Esq.

New York Contract Law: A Guide for Non-New York Attorneys is an invaluable reference allowing the practitioner to quickly and easily gain an understanding of New York Contract Law. Many contracts involving parties outside the United States contain New York choice-of-law clauses and, until now, the foreign practitioner had no practical, authoritative reference to turn to with questions regarding New York law. New York Contract Law: A Guide for Non-New York Attorneys fills this void. In addition to lawyers outside the United States, this book will also benefit lawyers within the United States whose practice includes advising clients regarding contracts governed by New York law.

Written by Glen Banks, Esq., a recognized authority on contract law with more than 35 years' experience, this book is presented in an easy-to-read question-and-answer format to allow easy access to a wide array of topics. All aspects of contract law are covered, from the basic requirements of a valid contract to a contract's termination, assignment or repudiation. Particular agreements and clauses are discussed as well as the role of counsel when working on a transaction governed by New York law. Resources for further study and to keep up on changes in New York law are also provided.

For your convenience, New York Contract Law: A Guide for Non-New York Attorneys can be purchased in hard copy (which includes a CD containing the entire book in a searchable, pdf format) or can be downloaded as an e-book in a pdf format.

Key Discussions

Is there a binding agreement?

Is that agreement valid and enforceable?

How is meaning given to the terms of the agreement?

What constitutes a breach of the contract?

When is a breach excused?

How is action taken to enforce the contract after a breach?

What remedy can the court grant to redress a breach?

“All told, a genuine gift to those in search of the ready, reliable New York contract law answer, whether they are located in, or beyond, our state’s borders.”

From the Foreword by Judith S. Kaye,

Former Chief Judge of the State of New York
