A new publication from Thomson West titled New York Contract Law, authored by Glen Banks, a partner at Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., promises to be a key desktop reference tool for practitioners anywhere in the world who are involved in transactions governed by New York law.

According to Thomson West, New York Contract Law offers clear analysis and commentary on all aspects of contracts governed by New York law; it discusses contract terms and clauses, as well as drafting strategies, to protect client interests. The book is a critical working manual for those who draft and perform agreements governed by New York law, and will be helpful in sorting out the complex commercial disputes that often arise under these agreements.

'The advantage the book offers is that it collects, organizes and succinctly presents New York law on a subject that is of day-to-day importance to both the New York practitioner and the transaction lawyer or commercial litigation attorney at a national law firm or major corporation/financial institution,' Mr. Banks says. 'It also will be a reference tool to foreign practitioners who participate in transactions and agreements with American companies and financial institutions.'

Highlights of New York Contract Law include analysis of relevant case law and statutes; commentary on vital issues and practice tips based on years of practice and litigation experience, and finding tools like the Table of Cases, Table of Laws and Rules, and Index. The publication will help quickly locate answers and provides additional research citations for those researching New York law and practitioners in national law firms, in major corporations or financial institutions, or in foreign countries that are involved in complex commercial transactions with documents governed by New York law.
